        Is there a counter-measure against the javelin?

            LOL!

            If you can drop a mortar shell on a javlin-toting bad guy (that's strafing around cargo canisters) between when he starts to acquire lock and fires at my tank... then I'll personally see to it that you get your Mortar Specialist ribbon ;)

                  Isn't that how Javelins are supposed to work? Are they just direct-fire weapons in BF3 then?

                    Re: BF3 Tutorial: How to Effectively Use the Javelin

                    I've heard a "top attack profile" mentioned, and there's a circle labeled "top" just above the one labeled "dir" (direct?) on the right of the javelin's screen. I'm nowhere close to unlocking it yet, so maybe those of you who have it can try to use the "top" feature, maybe try the toggle fire mode button (or even the flashlight button)?

                    Can't wait to get it tho.

                      For the missile to hit from above on the tank's weakspot you need to have the target laser designated by a helicopter or a recon with SOFLAM.

                            Could've sworn the javelin had a fire setting to automatically track up and then back down again. Its definitely in the single player and co-op missions, so it may be an unlock once you have a certain number of kills (which is actually kinda stupid). Might be able to toggle the fire-type though, but this is a niffy way to get around that little issue.

                            As for counter measures?
                            1) IR Smoke drops locks and may turn the javelin in flight into a dumb-fire which could then be evaded
                            2) Hopping out of the vehicle and leaving it empty tends to also drop locks as I don't recall seeing things like the Javelin or Stinger lock-on to an unoccupied vehicle. More familiar with the Stinger lock drops and wanna-be paratrooper pilots though.
                            My sanity is not in question...
                            It was a confirmed casualty some time ago.


                            Light, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they ticked me off.

                              What is the exact damage multiplier in top attack mode though?

                              If laser illuminator's range against air isn't so limited Javelin might be the most effective AA.
