Israel Successfully Tests Upgraded Iron Done Defense System

Click to see full-size image

On February 1st, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) successfully tested a new “advanced” Iron Dome missile defense system.

 

During the test, a number of scenarios were examined that simulate future threats that the system may face during a conflict on land and at sea.

“The more-advanced model of the Iron Dome is due to be installed on the Israeli Navy’s new Sa’ar-6 corvettes, which are tasked with guarding the natural gas platforms off Israel’s coast as well as its shipping lanes,” the Israeli Ministry of Defense said.

The ministry said the new, upgraded model of the system was due to be integrated into the Israeli Air Force shortly. Though Iron Dome batteries will be located on Israeli Navy ships, they will be operated by air force troops.

The development of the Iron Dome is led by the IMDO in the Ministry of Defense. The prime contractor for the development and production of the Iron Dome is Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd.

The MMR radar is developed by ELTA, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and the command-and-control system (BMC), is developed by mPrest. The Iron Dome is an integral part of Israel’s multi-layered defense array developed by the IMDO.

The Defense Ministry said the tests, which the Iron Dome passed, represented “an important milestone in developing the system.”

Defense Minister Benny Gantz hailed the successful tests, saying, “The defense establishment will continue to stand guard, around the clock and in every place.”

Back in December 2020, the Israeli Defense Ministry conducted an “unprecedentedly complex air defense exercise,” in which the Iron Dome was proven effective against not only the rockets, mortar shells and drones that it had already been used to intercept, but also cruise missiles.

In that exercise in December, the Defense Ministry also tested a new version of the medium-range David’s Sling air defense system, which is currently under development.

David’s Sling was pitted against ballistic missiles, which follow a fixed and predetermined trajectory, as well as the more-difficult-to-hit cruise missiles, which effectively function as small, fast, unmanned airplanes, capable of changing direction and thus better able to evade air defenses.

The lowest layer of Israel’s multi-tiered missile defense system is the Iron Dome.

The middle tier of the missile defense array is the David’s Sling system, which is designed to shoot down medium-range projectiles.

The farthest range are the Arrow, designed to intercept large ballistic missiles, and the American-made Patriot system, which is used to shoot down aircraft.

Israel actually fights wars … and wins eh johnny?

Coming ta git ya …

Jim Allen

NO, you’re not. And your US military protector isn’t either. Besides you arrogant sociopaths, and lunatics have been “coming to git ya” for so long now, you would’ve been here centuries ago, if you were actually coming to get us.
The Globalist Cabal has no plan to include the population of “chosen one’s.”
Only the “elite” chosen one’s matter. The agenda will leave 500 million goyim,
(including lesser “chosen ones”) to serve, and amuse them. The rest are just another goyim. This includes your sorry ass.

tzatz

Huh? Too confusing Jim …

Jim Allen

Poor thing.

El Mashi

In Israel’s last aggression in Lebanon, it has its ass handed back by Hezbollah. That was before Hezbollah had gained battle experience in Syria. They now have 150,000 rockets and missiles. The only solution to this problem is a pyric war or negotiations. Israel will have to return the occupied Syrian and Lebanese Golan Heights. Or, Hezbollah and allies will liberate it.

Condor

The way the new Asia centered world strategic balance is shaping up the Zionists are irrelevant and a burden on US and western taxpayers while our economies and societies go down the tubes. So-called Israel is just staging these meaningless stunts to get some attention.

tzatz

‘our economies / societies go down the tubes’? Huh?

Which economies / societies DO YOU BELONG TO?

The West? You’re a f/kn goy? lol

Get an education … there’s still a chance slug

El Mashi

Goy? Slug? Nice. What are you? Tapeworm.

tzatz

Just responding to Condor …

El Mashi

Zionist are in sheer panic mode as they see the United States in a state of collapse. Its economy and society have run out of steam. The United States lost the war in the Middle East, and its leaving in total defeat. The Zionists need the US to attack Iran and destroy it for Israel’s sake. The State Department is fully staffed by Jewish Americans and committed Zionists. Iran knows that Israel will force the US to war with Iran, and Iran and its allies are prepared. This is Israel’s last chance. The dye has been cast. Could mean nuclear war. Russia and China are prepared. The weakest government resides in Washington. AIPAC is in the driver’s seat.

tzatz

Keep talking about 2006 … why not 1980’s … Israel moved through Lebanon at will … pushing out the PLO … occupying up to the Litani River … eh?

2006 … Hezbollah started a war and then CRIED for a ceasefire when the Israelis were about to strangle Hezbollah … hello? It was the UN / the World that wanted the war to end NOT Israel …

next

El Mashi

Pathetic response. Shalom.

tzatz

How about this week‘s raids in Quneitra?

shylockracy

Terrorist Ziojew scum putting up some good theatre like a Rambo movie. Iran’s got ICBM capability and the Rothschild neocolony in Palestine’s tight beachfront squatterland can be wiped out with a few rockets.

This senseless situation wouldn’t have been like this if Russia/China would’ve called Bush’s WW3 bluff and given Iran warplanes, missiles and bombs instead of UN sanctions to save “business and partnership” with the Ziocorporate terrorists.

Whatever the Zioscum’s ISIS/al-Qaeda schemes were meant to be, they surely weren’t for Iran to increase its influence over Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. With luck the terrorist Jews won’t go full “Allahuakbar” retard to try to make up for it.

I’m not religious but I still think there is another world, and I hope there would be “heave” and “hell”…these cu0ts have it for themselves and fat pigs in US and EU gonna end up in same place as Zion.
Some of those fuking apes really do think, they are god’s chosen one…if their god is Satan, then I can understand them.

It will land all over your pitiful, lying, willfully ignorant, dishonorable, brainwashed, automaton, troll soul.
That’s just what happens to useful idiots after selling out to Zionist Khazar Atheists, pretending to be God’s chosen ones, when they have no further use.

tzatz

‘Chosen Ones’ ?

‘Zionist Khazar Atheists’?

These are your terms … goy

Jim Allen

Hey, you’re the lowlife sell out supporting the Globalist agenda’s. The term’s are not “mine,” they’re universally recognized, and accecpted descriptions of the criminal Banking Cabal you worship. From Canada.
You need not pretend you’re stupid, you’ve demonstrated that ad nauseam. That, and the determination to NOT learn.

tzatz

Learn ? I teach …. lol

I was part of the ‘banking cabal’ … I accept the World I was born into … worts and all … the ‘rule of law’ works for me … Jews and Jewish property is defended … so far … eh?

And … there’s always Israel … hello?

Jeffrey Wilens

Some real sicko people posting below. Life has not been good to them and they were without God.

Ashok Varma

Which God? Rama, we have over 50,000 LOL. So-called Israel is a parasitic criminal entity and is hurtling towards its end and staging these firecracker stunts to stay relevant. No one is impressed by western taxpayer leeches.

Jeffrey Wilens

Doubt you are Hindu since India has good relations with Israel and a common foe (which you most likely a member of).

Potato Man

“since India has good relations with Israel”
India, also have good relations with Iran…having “good relations” with other countries don’t mean shit…trading and backing each other at UN or UNSC = “good relations”.
Zion have “good” relations with KSA-UAE now as well…it is “good relations” because all of them are terrorists and support terrorists.

BTW…I live in country that suck Zion assh0le 24/7, but that don’t mean I’m follow old ugly moronic evangelical that gonna burn in hell for good.

“and a common foe (which you most likely a member of).”
Go one and say buddy don’t hide your ugly face…”a common foe” -> ignoring history I see, if it wasn’t for British ape, Muslims and Hindu would have lived together.
I have a lot of Indian and Muslims friend fuk face and (Abdul Kalam, Zakir Husain and Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed) were all Muslims. Fuking moron.
You ugly bitch, I can tell your cheap shit with shit replies.

You’re a f/kn muslim in America … a 5th columnist

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING … the next knock on the door won’t be UberEats … eh?

“a 5th columnist…?”

Ummm… I’m pretty sure the fanatical pro-Israel lobby is the real 5th column in the USA, but don’t let that spoil your fantasy.

tzatz

Israel is a major ally of the USA … almost a 51st State

Kiev500

“Israel is a major ally of the USA … almost a 51st State”

The hell you say! If Israel were a US state, it’s activity in occupied territory would be cause for civil war. The Constitution is against almost every facet of Israel’s behavior in OT. President Nixon had some interesting things to say about the pro-Israel lobby and questionable loyalty of US Jews in certain areas related to Israel’s national interests. Look it up.

tzatz

Aww …

You’re upset at the ‘activity in occupied territory’? TFB

Israel’s behaviour in OT? pmsl

President Nixon’s views on Jews? lol

I’m keeping score …. eh?

Whose winning so far?

Mahatma Gandhi, 26 November 1938

Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that
England belongs to the English or France to the French. It
is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs. What
is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any
moral code of conduct. The mandates have no sanction but
that of the last war. Surely it would be a crime against
humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can
be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national
home. The nobler course would be to insist on a just
treatment of the Jews wherever they are born and bred. The
Jews born in France are French in precisely the same sense
that Christians born in France are French.

Gandhi made perfect sense when he said it over 8 decades
ago and it’s makes perfect sense today. That was the
first time in the history of the world that a European
people who had never set foot on that land said they were
returning to that land. The fact that they looked alien in
the region and that they looked completely European did
not bother them. For them, it was a matter of how much
free Arab land they could conquer. And without the US
helping them, the Arabs would have shown them the way home
a long time ago. Without a doubt, it is not going to end
well for them for the simple reason that the Christian
West used to be their enemy and today they have acquired
the hatred of 1.7 billion Muslims. Sooner or later, they
are going to have to get out of that Arab land.

The idea that European Jewry was not stealing land but “returning”
to their ancestral land is as ridiculous as Nigerians returning
to Ireland. Hitler said they were an alien people but where did
the aliens come from? The chances of having origin in the Arab
region is 0, so where did these lily white folks come from?

The Jew is not so smart because looking as alien as he does
in the Arab region, he used a silly excuse that he the
white Jew was returning home to where his ancestors lived
2,000 years ago. But to their humiliation, DNA has confirmed
that the Ashkenazi = 100% European. So the excuse of
“return” is no longer valid, so what other excuse
will they try again? They should have insisted that they
get their share of land right there in Europe, they have a
right to it. But today, these people are hated by 98% of
the people of the Middle East. Is it worth it? There will
never come a time when the Arabs will accept a completely
foreign people to steal their land. Therefore, I say they
are not that smart to insert themselves in a region that
is completely unknown to them and completely foreign to
them.

Theodor Herzl wrote in his diary that the area that he
would be demanding was all the way from the Nile to the
Euphrates and Palestine is only 1% of the land they wanted
to occupy. In the old days, people used to refer to them
as Hebrews or Israelite, meaning that people really
thought the European Jews were Israelite. But that is no
more the case today and as more and more people pay
attention to the fact that European Jews are European,
they would lose legitimacy for their occupation of Arab land.
