Britain will cover the Falkland Islands Israeli air defense

51
Britain decided to deploy in the Falkland Islands a new air defense system. According to a report from the defenseworld.net portal, the British Defense Ministry has officially announced the purchase of the Israeli Sky Saber missile system.


Sky Saber air defense system was created on the basis of the Israeli “Iron Dome” (Iron Dome). The main contractor for the contract, whose value is estimated at £ 78 million ($ 92 million), is Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

Land Ceptor Launchers used in Sky Saber air defense system

The purchase of the new air defense system was carried out within the amount of £ 280 million, which the Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom Michael Fallon promised to allocate for increasing the defense capability of the Falkland Islands. The military department indicates that Sky Saber should make full money already in 2020.

The Iron Dome system is designed to intercept unguided tactical missiles at a distance from 4 to 70 km. Its development began in 2006 year, and the first successful tests took place a year later. In 2011, the battery was deployed in Israel between Beer Sheva and Ashkelon, where it demonstrated 100% efficiency by shooting down all eight Grad rockets launched from the Gaza Strip in the aforementioned cities, reports "Warspot"

              It’s clear that in Israel it’s relevant, to defend oneself from barmaley,
              but is it possible that today Argentina will bombard objects with unguided tactical missiles?

              PS
              With my own eyes in the summer of 2014 I saw how such a rocket was shot down over Tel Aviv

              It is a pity that a billion Chinese, a billion Indians, a billion Africans, half a billion Arabs, 350 million Slavs, half a billion who prefer to speak German, but not English (which is also their branch). Latin America prefers to speak Spanish and Portuguese, and there are more than 600 million of them. Moreover, the whole world, including Palestinian Jews, except for a number of English-speaking renegades, use the metric system.

              Conclusion Yes, English matters, but in international transport. A little bit in programming, because initially the computer language is closer to Esperanto, i.e. a primitive set of different words, or rather the language of numbers, more now the Japanese and Chinese write with their hieroglyphs. The numbers are called Arabic, but originally from India, especially zero and digital technologies speak this Aryan language, medicine in Latin, the metric system is adopted in world science because the French school was the ancestor of this.
              With the loss of control of the Anglo-Saxons, over the main global traffic flows, and they are partially controlled by the Russian Federation, in Eurasia, no more than half a million people will speak this disgusting and primitive language. The funny thing is that in the United States tens of millions of people do not speak English, they even have to translate the state structures of the south into Spanish, and in Canada, many francophones do not speak English and have no problems. In the EU, this is only one of the bureaucratic languages, no more than French, German and Italian, etc. 24 languages ​​of the union into which the whole nomenclature is translated ...

                English has supplanted Latin from medicine for about 30 years, and the Chinese, Indians, Arabs and Slavs involved in programming, international trade, etc. communicate with each other in English, and watch movies with TV shows in the same language ...

        On April 2, 1982, Argentine troops also landed on the Falkland Islands. A company of 80 Marines, located in Port Stanley, capitulated without resistance by order of Governor Rex Hunt. Galtieri appointed General Mario Menendos, Commander of the Argentine Expeditionary Force, the new governor. England on the same day broke off diplomatic relations with Argentina.

    Well, the British do not act on the principle of "go hunting - feed the dogs." They prefer to have a complex in advance, capable of protecting the islands if necessary. And the Argentine Air Force - yes, now we can talk more about the absence of the Air Force than about the presence, but everything flows, everything changes
