Israel, together with the Americans, tested the Hetz and Hetz-2 missile defense systems

The Israeli Defense Ministry has published a report on the testing of the Hetz (Strela) and Hetz-2 anti-missile systems. The department called the testing of missile defense systems successful.


Attention is drawn to the fact that the tests were carried out in a joint version with representatives of the American anti-missile defense agency - MDA. This is due to the fact that the United States is considering the possibility of strengthening its missile defense system based on the use of Israeli-made complexes. So, earlier tests of the upgraded version of the complex - "Hetz-3" - were carried out in the United States, namely at one of the test sites located in the state of Alaska.

During tests at a test site in central Israel, the Khetz and Khez-2 anti-missile systems intercepted target missiles. We are talking about missiles belonging to the Ankor class.

The Khetz missile defense system was adopted by the Israel Defense Forces 20 years ago. Since then, it has gone through several stages of modernization.

The radar of the complex is capable of detecting targets, according to the manufacturer, at a distance of up to 900 km. At the same time, the maximum distance for intercepting a missile is 90 km. The complex "Hets-3" also allows for the transatmospheric interception of ballistic targets. The Israeli army considers such a complex as part of a multilevel missile defense system, which includes, in particular, another missile defense system - the Iron Dome.

    Together with the United States, and for the US Army for sure, which means that the missiles and filling will have serious differences from the domestic version. It was clearly created against our missiles, for deployment at US bases in Romania and Polyakhia, in order to defend the American missile defense system in Europe.

      The states simply do not have land-based air defense systems of this class.
      ONLY BUSINESS!

    90 km range ... not much. How is transatmospheric interception? The upper boundary of the atmosphere can be considered 10 - 12 km ... Very vague definition. So what is the real height?
    Found! Interception height up to 50 km. Worthy. And the target speed is up to 4.5 km / s. Not the S-400, but very, very ...

      You have beguiled two different systems.
      An advanced system was tested Hetz 2 and the data that you have provided refers to her.
      Complex "Khets-3" allows to carry out transatmospheric interception of ballistic targets.
      Height 100-150 km. range 900 km. When tested in Alaska, the radar spotted a target at a distance of 4000 km.

    The United States may acquire some technology, but it is unlikely that it will need the entire Hetz-2/3 system. They have no less advanced systems.

      Isn't this system the fruit of joint cooperation?
      In February 2003, IAI and the American Boeing signed an agreement on the establishment of the production of components for the Hetz-2 missile in the United States in order to be able to use the funds provided in the framework of American military assistance to purchase missiles. Under this agreement, the American concern took over the production of about 35% of the rocket components at its plant in Huntsville (Alabama), as well as the coordination of production carried out by other American contractors. IAI is responsible for the overall coordination and final assembly of missiles in Israel. In the spring of 2005, the Israeli army received the first jointly produced missile.

        Not shared. The production of missiles was moved to the territory of the United States so that it was possible to use American military assistance for the purchase of interceptors.

    What would the respected Israelis say if we were testing the new s-400 and s-500 systems in Iran? And did they jointly develop missile defense systems? Well, in addition, the tests of Zircon and other fun, provided active assistance in the development of Iranian nuclear and missile programs. Maybe stop playing this circus and portraying partners? Israel is helping the United States, our worst enemy, who has set a lifelong goal of leveling Russia to the level of Afghanistan.

      And where did you get the idea that the United States has the main goal of "leveling Russia" ????? Do you really believe in open US intervention in Russia?

        Only my personal opinion: There will be no intervention, just economically, politically, militarily, they want to reduce the country to a level 50-60% lower than the well-known 90s. Without an army, without nuclear weapons, crime and eternal poverty, complete subordination of local elites and authorities. A sort of Reichskommissariat. Or a variant of a permanent eternal civil war between different mini-states, as in Africa. With borders drawn along a ruler on the map, these are rectangles. They did it in the Middle East, Africa, India, China, why are we an exception? It's comfortable. There will be no Russia for them - there will be no problems. They will crush China. And what will happen if the United States completely subjugates the world, I do not know and do not want to know.

      You wrote it, there were no such statements on either side.
      But the predecessor of Russia, since 1950, helped Egypt and Syria in their desire to destroy Israel, and even now this dream has not passed from Assad, but modern Russia no longer wants to play these games.
      And Assad has found a new companion, Iran and its satellite Hezbollah.

      The operation on the night of September 6, 2007, which lasted four hours, involved four F-16 fighters, which dropped 17 tons of bombs on the object, "thereby eliminating the atomic threat to Israel and the entire region," the military said in a statement.
      In 2011, the IAEA named the destroyed facility a nuclear reactor, in the construction of which North Korea helped the Syrians.

          You are an educated person and you yourself understand everything.

          Thank you, yes, I understand and I get comprehensive information in contrast to what they give you and I can compare all this. The USSR dealt with its allies very quickly in case of no commemoration, and this remained in the memory, not only of the establishment, but also of the common people. And the events of the last decade do not add positive emotions.

          Russia, as a country, is not convenient for a unipolar world, where the only center is the United States.

          They talk about this only in Russia. And the West is afraid of only one thing, nuclear weapons which, in case of any minor conflict or even an error, Russia can use (as it was recently announced)
          You made hyperspeed rockets and we will make them.

          Russia has an army and nuclear weapons

          Yes, there is this and they are afraid, as I wrote above, and this is called the arms race, which destroyed the USSR.
          Quote: V1er
          Russia does not bend under sanctions

          It is clear that it does not bend, but many possibilities, including the ordinary life of people, have become much worse, it also affects the armament, that a very long time passes from development to completing the army.

      The USA is not your worst enemy, but rather a rival. Your senior management sends their offspring to study in the United States. They buy real estate there and transfer money there. Israelis do not buy real estate in Iran, do not educate their children there, and do not travel there on tours. Since this is not possible. Iran is a real enemy, not a fictional one. So I think the comparison is incorrect.

    Rather, the parameters are close to 400. Here is Boeing and Lockheed, especially part of the dough from them, as it were. They understand that we can apply against "points" or "fateh". And this is combat experience.
