The Javelin F.(A.W.) Mk.9 is a rank VI British jet fighter with a battle rating of 8.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.85 "Supersonic".
Describe how the aircraft behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

Survivability and armour
Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.
The Javelin F.(A.W.) Mk.9 is armed with:
- 4 х 30 mm ADEN cannons, wing-mounted (100 rpg = 400 total)
The Javelin F.(A.W.) Mk.9 can be outfitted with the following ordinance:
- Without load
- 4 х Firestreak air-to-air missiles
Usage in battles
Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons
- More maneuverable than other jets
- Effective air to air missiles
- Good acceleration
- Is equipped with the AN/APS-21 target detection radar, with the best range of any airborne radar in the game; as well having an AN/APG-26 tracking radar.
- Relatively low top speed
- Convergence is important (guns are far apart)
- Extremely poor energy retention
- Anything more than slight damage to wings causes massive loss in speed and lift
Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the
main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using
<ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under
=== Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:
- reference to the series of the aircraft;
- links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
