ORLANDO, Fla. Department of Defense (DoD) officials selected Raytheon/Lockheed Martin's Javelin Joint Venture for the production of 2,100 F-Model (FGM-148F) missiles.

The contract launches the initial full-rate production agreement for the Javelin F-Model missile, which will replace the Javelin FGM-148E (Block I). The Javelin F-Model round deliveries are planned for early 2020.

The Javelin FGM-148F missile features an advanced multipurpose warhead (MPWH) as part of the man portable, fire-and-forget Javelin missile system. The MPWH incorporates the latest generation shaped charged technology and adds a fragmenting steel warhead case to improve lethality against soft targets and light armored vehicles.
