Israel: 'David's Sling' passes advanced tests
A new air defence system being developed in partnership with the United States has passed advanced tests, the Defence Ministry said on Wednesday, putting it on course for possible deployment by next year.

 

David's Sling is designed to shoot down rockets with ranges of between 100 km and 200 km (63 miles and 125 miles), aircraft or low-flying cruise missiles. It will thus fill the operational gap between the Iron Dome short-range rocket interceptor and the Arrow ballistic missile interceptor, both already active.
