There are plenty of counters to the 'Javelin Penis':|
Upgrade: Reactive Armour
Gadget: IR Smoke
Weapon: whatever you prefer (I usually go for Guided Shell)
Upgrade: Thermal Camo
Upgrade: Maintenance for larger maps, Proximity Scan for smaller maps
Having all those abilities active simultaneously means tanks can still be death machines, with a little bit of planning and teamwork.
