Are you sure?? Because this video is fake.
It's a Russian site, I really don't know who to believe. Plus, the Javelin without a doubt can penetrate the top armor of a T-72, dual charge HEAT warheads against thin steel armor. Who wins?
T-72's use ERA (Explosive Reactor Armor) , do heat rounds bust through that? >>> Iraqi tanks did not have the ERA so dont try correcting me.
ERA is more effective against HEAT rounds then KE rounds. The Javelin overcomes this by having a dual HEAT charge. The first round detonates the ERA and the second penetrates the armor. Almost all HEAT charges will penetrate the top armor of any tank.

ERA makes a blow against the "fire carrot" of striking heat round and breaks it, so it can reduce heat's penetration even 50%!

That's why wise men have developed "tandem-shot" wich first penetrates ERA and after that the main armor.

have a look at the first Javelin mpg on this site. Im sure you will agree that the explosions are a little more realistic than the Javelin v T72 vid although that mpg is on the same sitehttp://www.missilesandfirecontrol.co...o_library.html
