Israel has completed tests of the upgraded version of the Iron Dome air defense missile defense system

Israel has completed tests of the modernized Iron Dome anti-aircraft missile defense system. This was reported by the press service of the country's Defense Ministry.


According to the report, the test cycle was carried out at one of the test sites in the south of the country. The tests were attended by the Air Force and Air Defense of Israel, as well as the US Air Force. It is emphasized that the modernized complex was able to simultaneously intercept a group of unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as repel rocket and mortar volleys.

A series of tests (...) demonstrated a significant upgrade of the technological capabilities of the system. The Iron Dome was tested in difficult conditions, successfully intercepting and destroying targets that simulate emerging complex threats, including the simultaneous interception of several UAVs, as well as a massive missile salvo

- said in a statement.


The Defense Ministry said that the updated complex will be adopted by the Air Force and Navy units of the IDF, as well as installed on the Israeli Saar-6 corvettes.

At the beginning of last year, the Israeli Defense Ministry announced the creation of a state-of-the-art laser air defense system, which will complement the existing Iron Dome missile defense system by shooting down guided missiles and drones. The tests were scheduled for 2021.

          Whoever does not do laser air defense. From news for 2 days https://www.defensenews.com/
          The Americans are testing a buggy laser somewhere.

          The British have improved the characteristics of their

          The Turks are accelerating their development.



          And so the United States is already serially putting laser weapons on ships, called ODIN.

            You did not understand the sarcasm addressed to the professor. He made fun of us when Putin said that we have laser weapons. And not only he, but also some of his fellow countrymen ... even then it was clear that this direction was developing and many countries were engaged in this, and some of them would soon have such weapons, and we were ahead of others. But they wanted to make fools of us in every possible way. I try to remind them of this in every possible way ...

    Very competent air defense. Another previous version did not shoot at ballistic targets that could not fall on populated areas. And now you can see the radar and speed have been tightened, the automation of the response salvo. About the parading of a flock of UAVs, this is relevant. Although our specialists went their own way: air defense derivation, Mercury, Terminator. tongue

    As always, missiles fly at non-maneuvering targets, and the Hausites have long learned how to shoot down like that! They made fun of the laser, I remember there were articles on the topvar, where they shouted that the Israelis would not only create a combat laser before anyone else in the world, but also put it into service! Only, the matter does not move further than low-power lasers, there are many more problems in reality than thought. ...

      Well, they can't maneuver the shells from MLRS, drones can but weakly, these are not some kind of FPV racing quadcopters. The downing of cruise missile simulators was not shown at all.
      I just think that if you bungle a kamikaze drone based on a racing FPV quadric, then any air defense system, oh, how tight it will have to

    it is interesting to calculate the price-consumption of Dome rockets and the price-consumption of unguided projectiles from BM-21 and similar systems. Who is the winner? I think the shells from the RMZO are clearly cheaper than the dome rockets ..
    and if the warhead is cassette, then how to shoot down? Or does he catch it from before opening the cassettes?

      If this system saves at least 1 life, all costs will pay off.
      And since the missiles are relatively cheap, the United States plans to buy them for its C-RAM. If you read the economy, you need to add the possible damage to the equation.

        And what if there are a lot of such attacks with cheap drones and MLRS?
        Will this lead to depletion of the Dome?
        Tactically, it can be good, and against a very weak opponent. But strategically ...
        Therefore, the solution must be comprehensive, selective and layered.

      The Russian Federation sold to Iran the S-300PMU2 from the list of its armed forces. I am ready to sell military and transport aircraft, tanks, and whatever. China supplies the Persians directly or indirectly with missile technologies, threatening to invest hundreds of billions of dollars in them. What is the actual problem, what is itching for you?

        We do not have cooperation with Iran. We do not have joint developments that we put into service. Israel and the United States have them. Starting with a trophy and ending with a dome, arrows, similar systems. Israel is equipping the United States with its technology. And the United States dreams of destroying Russia. By the word "destroy" I do not mean nuclear ashes, but specifically to create a colony, a completely slave state, like Ukraine.

    And what if each drone or NURS will have two or three cheap but powerful jammers operating at the frequency (s) of the Iron Dome radar pulse when tracking a target. Plus, they will not turn on immediately, but at a random time in the middle of the flight path to the target ... Will the Dome be able to track the target so accurately in such conditions? Powerful transmitters are now compact and cheap.

    Iranian third-graders, wiping their whiskers wet from laughter, point their fingers at expensive and useless Jewish missiles that even a 5th generation Persian plane cannot detect.
    All highly developed leaders of the national liberation movement, from the Gaza Strip and Yemen to Mogadishu and Pyongyang, thanks to proper education, understand the futility of attacking well-protected military facilities of decaying capitalist countries, so the weapon of righteous anger is directed at the industrial infrastructure and colonial settlements of the enemy, and all of their figs protect fellow

                Israel is one of the world's top ten arms exporters and sells arms quite openly. The Russian Federation sells 10 times more weapons than Israel, and one can only dream about the transparency of supplies.

                You sold weapons to Azerbaijan, Armenia almost choked with blood and Russia was on the brink of a serious conflict ..
                Now you are supplying the Banderaites with weapons, again soon blood will be shed and spilled in the Donbass ..
                Is that why you are so partial to Russia? You don’t supply arms to Cuba and Venezuela, for example .. negative Many thoughts are suggested by your behavior in Israel and in general

                  And your Israel is constantly inflicting airstrikes on Damascus, the capital of a neighboring state, which is under the protection of Russia, how do you like that? What are you all boasting about and what theories are you trying to sniff at us here?

                  Lousy protection, however, if from your words "Israel constantly inflicts airstrikes on Damascus, the capital of a neighboring state, which is under the protection of Russia."

                  Who is Armenia’s doctor, that they didn’t want to buy our weapon, but bought yours?

                  We are not interested in the Russian Federation, and Cuba and Venezuela are rogue and insolvent.

    I hope it’s as good in reality as in the video .. The Israelis need it very much ... All kinds of terrorists water them every day ..
