The Javelin soldier is an Allied anti-tank/anti-air specialist infantry.


While Peacekeepers engage enemy infantry, Javelin soldiers fire missiles against enemy vehicles and aircraft. Javelin Soldiers are the replacement for the Guardian GI, which was lost from the Allied arsenal due to Cherdenko changing the time stream. Although not as armored as their shotgun wielding counterparts, the Peacekeeper, they are much more effective against tanks and are capable of engaging aircraft, something the Peacekeepers have no claim to. Together, the two form the core of Allied infantry divisions.

The Javelin soldiers' launchers can also paint targets with a laser, increasing the troopers' lethality, assuming that they have the time to charge their laser, the target doesn't leave their range or forcing them on the move while "painting" the target. If the lock-on process is complete, the Javelin soldier can activate the missile auto fire that launch near infinite rapid missile fire. This bursts will stop if the target is destroyed or the Javelin soldier, in any reason, call off the shot.

They do not wear armor, most likely due to the heavy equipment they carry. Their missile launcher is also ineffective against infantry, making them vulnerable against anti-personnel infantry.

Unfortunately, unlike the Peacekeeper, there is no detailed information on the Javelin Soldiers' history and origins, please make due with what has been gleaned from field recon.

Javelin Launcher The Javelin Soldier's primary mode of fire. In this mode, rockets are fired without laser guidance, without the same amount of firepower or accuracy. However, this requires no lock-on period, which makes it generally more suitable against most targets.
RA3 Laser Lock Icons
Laser Lock Activating laser guidance allows the Javelin Soldier a much higher rate of fire as well as increased accuracy, though requires a period of time before firing in order to lock on to a target. Highly effective against tougher and less mobile enemy vehicles, as well as structures.

Hold still, sucker!

Javelin soldiers are very effective against armored units and aircraft, as well as structures. However, they are extremely vulnerable against anti-infantry units, such as Soviet Sickles. They also have no way of deterring enemy units from crushing them, unlike their Soviet and Imperial counterparts. Therefore, it is recommended to garrison them inside structures to improve their survivability.

Their Laser Lock ability is utterly useless against faster units, since they can simply move out of the way before the Javelin soldiers can finish locking onto them. However, they are deadly against structures and slower units, such as Kirov airships, Apocalypse tanks, and MCVs.



  • Very good anti-armor and anti-aircraft unit
  • Powerful in numbers
  • Laser lock deadly against heavily armored units
  • Can reduce a lightly defended base to rubble


  • Vulnerable against anti-infantry units
  • Defenseless against crushing, unlike their counterparts
  • Laser lock on takes time

  • Two real-world Javelin missile systems exist: the FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missile system used by the contemporary US military and the British Javelin surface-to-air missile.
  • The weapon that the soldier actually uses looks similar to a Stinger missile launcher. 
  • Strangely, Javelin soldiers wear helmets, yet do not wear any kind of body armor.
  • When idle, Javelin soldiers will do an MC hammer dance.
  • The Javelin Soldier's mannerisms and quotes are reminiscent to American football players to the point that they refer to their commander as "coach".
