      Actually the FGM-148 Javelin is what replaced the Dragon. I was in the ARMY when that occurred (1996). The Dragon was a surface to surface missile guided through an attached wire. The Javelin uses laser targeting, allowing us to shot and then leave instead of having to sit and wait until the rocket hit its target. The Stinger is a Surface to Air missile, different category.
