Lithuania's Javelin missiles will turn Russian tanks into 'tin cans,' report claims

 (21)
Last week, it was officially confirmed that Lithuania will buy Javelin mid-range anti-tank systems from the United States for €50 million. The T-72 tank, widely used by Russian army and also used in Ukraine, is like a tin can when faced with a Javelin. More about the Lithuanian military's new purchase was revealed on an LRT TV programme about military weapons.
