Israel tests naval version of C-DOME Iron Dome air defense system

On the newest Israeli corvette INS Oz class Saar 6 passed exercises to intercept air targets. During their conduct, Israel tested a naval version of the C-DOME Iron Dome air and missile defense system.


This is stated in a joint statement by the Israeli Defense Ministry's Anti-Missile Defense Organization (IMDO), the IDF Air Force Command and the defense company Rafael.

What specific targets were intercepted by the sea version of the Iron Dome during trials has not yet been reported.

For test interception, the system was installed on INS Oz, the second of four upgraded missile corvettes received by the Israeli fleet over the past two years. Adopting it into service will significantly expand the capabilities of these warships.

Ran Gozali, executive vice president of the Israeli company Rafael, claims that such an operational solution for maritime defense so far does not exist anywhere else in the world.

The C-DOME system represents a significant addition to the defense capabilities of the Israeli Navy in a wide range of tasks, including the protection of strategic installations, the exclusive economic zone and maintaining the regional maritime superiority of the State of Israel

- approved in the text of the joint statement.

    So the corvette is not bad

    A feature of the Saar 6 project is its exceptionally powerful anti-aircraft and anti-missile weapons for a ship of this size, which includes a 32-round vertical launcher for medium and long-range air defense systems Barak 8 and two 40-round launchers for the C-Dome tactical missile defense system (a naval version of the Iron missile defense system). Dome). The ship will also receive 16 anti-ship missile launchers (Boeing Harpoon Block 2 or the new Israeli IAI Gabriel 5), a 76-mm Leonardo Super Rapid universal artillery mount, two 25-mm Rafael Typhoon remote-controlled artillery mounts (with the possibility of using missiles from these installations Rafael Spike-ER). 324mm torpedo tubes for Raytheon Mk 54 anti-submarine torpedoes and a permanently garrisoned Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk helicopter.

      With Saar 5 it was the same story, although it is even smaller, the frigate's weapons were shoved into the corvette, in order to save money.

    Well, when the Houthis check it, we'll see. And they heard fairy tales about impenetrability ... Then there was something burning strongly and for a long time in Azrailovka)))

    So the system is designed to intercept unguided Palestinian projectiles. What will she intercept while on the ships?

      Not tired of replicating this bike?
      It thought to intercept unguided projectiles, and thought и happened - two big differences.
      Yes, and 11 years of modernization is not an empty place.
      The system intercepts mostly unguided projectiles from Gaza, not because it cannot do anything else, but because almost nothing else comes from Gaza, although sometimes drones fly, and it clicks them in the field.
      And a couple of months ago, the Iranians were simply dipped into a puddle, those 4 drones (like "Geranium") were sent towards the gas platform. So one shot down a fighter, one C-DOME, one Barak 8, and one dropped electronic warfare.
      Those on serious soup wanted to play with their muscles, spoil the platform, and on their "terrible attack" they simply practiced the calculations of different systems, like on hamsters, and then a bomb flew into the control booth of these drones, tightly.
      Terribly humiliating perhaps. But this fully explains why the Kh0khly dug into Israel with a tick, to beg for air defense.

    Everyone Good system, but there is Achilles' heel - it is designed for firing at targets flying along a ballistic trajectory of "blanks" - simple barrels with a powder accelerator!
    For missiles with a more complex flight profile - alas ... this is NOT a panacea!

      So other complexes will shoot them down. But Russia would now be very useful analogue of the Dome for the protection of border areas. The Chinese recently played something similar at the exhibition.

        Yes, a ship with a purely air defense system would not interfere with our fleet. Plus all sorts of "Daggers", "Derivations" with programmable ammunition.

      It consists in ignorance of the question, but in the desire to present one's ignorance as the ultimate truth.
      Maybe this will help you understand that in Israel they are seriously engaged in their defense.

    American Jews never forgot their Jewish friends in Israel, but they still cannot create a panacea; despite a number of successes, the assassination of Gadaffi and the execution of Hussein are still far from complete victory over the Arabs

      Did you get a manual from naphthalene?
      The victory happened a long time ago, common sense won. fellow
