Javelin Weapon System Goes 5-for-5 In Yudh Abhyas Trials

PARIS, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of the Indian Army and U.S. Army Yudh Abhyas joint exercise, the Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) Javelin Weapon System proved flawless performance as an anti-tank guided missile.

Five Javelin missiles fired from the command launch unit achieved five direct-hits. The Javelins were fired by two U.S. Army gunners from the 82nd Airborne Division and three Indian Army gunners.

"In recent years, Indian and U.S. gunners have fired a total of 16 Javelin missiles with 16 direct-hits in multiple Yudh Abhyas joint exercises; the results speak for themselves," said Duane Gooden, president of the Javelin Joint Venture and director of the Raytheon Javelin program. "These warfighters experienced reliability and user friendliness first hand."

Javelin is the world's only shoulder launched, fire-and-forget missile system that is combat proven and capable of defeating any armored vehicle.

"Javelin provides a key opportunity to strengthen the U.S. and India relationship, and the Javelin Joint Venture regards it as a high priority. We are prepared to comply with India's requirement for major defense procurements," said Barry James, vice president of the Javelin Joint Venture and Javelin program director at Lockheed Martin.
