Army Recognition editorial team explains how works the Iron Dome, an Israeli air defense missile system used to destroy HAMAS rockets. In this video, you will see also a full technical review of the most efficient combat system in the world that provides an effective defense solution for countering rockets, artillery, and mortars (what is called C-RAM in short), as well as aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, unguided and Precision Guided Missiles.

The Iron Dome is the only dual mission system in the world that provides an effective defense solution for countering rockets, artillery and mortars (what is called C-RAM in short), as well as aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, unguided and Precision Guided Missiles. The system is an effective system for countering C-RAM threats with ranges of up to 70 km and, for very short air defense protection (or V-SHORAD) at up to 10km. The system operates in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog.
A single Iron Dome battery is required to protect an urban area of approximately 150km² from rockets fired at a range of 15 km, with the defended area growing if the rockets are fired from greater distances, which is crucial as the HAMAS has just demonstrated it can fire missiles at distances of up to roughly 200 km, if not 250. The Iron Dome is indeed able to intercept and eliminate a wide range of threats like mortar shells, Hamas' Qassams, Hezbollah's Katyusha rockets and even the Fajr rockets supplied by Iran to the Hezbollah and Hamas.
