What type of missile is that?....Is the tank becoming obsolete?

I first thought it was a TOW, but the file says Javelin vs T72 so I assume it is a Javelin. [:)]

Yes, the missile bring fired is a Javelin man portable anti-tank buster. The missile weighs only 50lbs and it uses a kinetic energy penetrater instead of a shaped charge. The tank in the video was destroyed from a distance of 4000 meters!

Now that was impressive. 50lbs? Doesn't sound too man portable.
