Iron Dome anti-missile defense system battery deployed in southern Israel

Britain purchased technology used in the Iron Dome systems to protect the Falkland Islands from Argentina.

The UK occupied the 776 islands in 1833, while Argentina claims the islands belong to them.


The UK will use Rafael’s system to incorporate it into Britain’s Land Ceptor air defense system. It will be fully integrated by 2020.

They paid 78 million pounds for the technology (365 million shekels).
