US troops showcase Javelin missile

The US 2nd Cavalry has already made a big splash since their arrival in Latvia, not least thanks to their highly entertaining YouTube clips and their willingness to talk to the locals. 

Their latest video clip showcases an exercise to famliarize Latvia's army with the formidable FGM-148 Javelin missile at the Adazi military base near Riga.

As one Twitter commentator put it: "The price tag is $78K, per missile but it's worth it!"

It still works out a lot cheaper than the tank it obliterates and also provides plenty of entertainment to the watching troops - as the video below testifies!
