On May 8, Reuters published an interview with Lockheed Martin plant manager James Taiclet.
"Taiclet said the goal is to increase system production to 4,000 a year from the current 2,100. He said it could take up to several years to build," Reuters said.
According to Taiclet, the success of Javelin and its proven effectiveness will increase demand among other countries. That is why you need to increase production immediately.
"We are planning for the long term and not just for Javelin," said Taiclet.
It will be recalled that on May 3, Joe Biden visited the Lockheed Martin plant and gave a press conference on providing Ukraine with weapons to resist Russia and win the war.
