The Russian army is actively equipping its tanks with so-called anti-Javelin protection, which is an anti-accumulation grille welded over the tower. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have checked whether this design can protect against a Javelin missile.

The practical firing of the Javelin anti-tank missile system took place on the orders of the Commander of the Joint Forces, Lieutenant General Oleksandr Pavliuk, at one of the military training grounds in the area of environmental protection.

Lattices, which, according to the Russians, were supposed to protect the tank from damage from above, did not help.
