Recall that the agency of the Ministry of Defense of the United States for military cooperation (Defense Security Cooperation Agency - DSCA) November 17, 2017the year, the United States Congress was notified of the upcoming sale of Georgia through the line of intergovernmental military sales of Foreign Military Jets (FMS) portable anti-tank missile systems Javelin from the presence of the US Army. The estimated delivery cost was $ 75 million. The supply was to include 72 SLU series Block 1 portable launchers (including two for use as a source of spare parts) and 410 Javelin anti-tank guided missiles, as well as ten BST simulators and 70 training shots.
Since the delivery is made from the presence of the US Army, it was carried out very quickly, and deliveries of Javelin complexes to Georgia were started in January 2018. This was the first delivery of the Javelin anti-tank systems to the non-NATO member republic of the former USSR and the first significant sale of American weapons to Georgia since the time of the Five-Day War in August 2008. Deliveries of Javelin Georgia are carried out against American financing.
We point out that on April 30, 2018, a representative of the US State Department announced the delivery of Javelin complexes to Ukraine.
