Its not range of Iron Dome, its range of rockets which Iron Dome can shot down.http://www.rafael.co.il/Marketing/186-1530-en/Marketing.aspx
According to this it has a range of 70 km and beyond , and I remember reading from IAF Web that they doubled the range
Iron Dome - protects vs. artillery rockets with range 4-70+ km (that includes Grad, Uragan, Smerch etc).Wanted to ask this.
What's the difference between the roles and capability of David's Sling and Arrow 3?
David's Sling - protects vs. short range ballistic missiles with ranges from 40 to 300 km (that includes Luna, Tochka, Fateh 110, Scud A, Scud B) + cruise missiles.
Arrow 2 - protects vs medium range ballistic missiles (Scud B, Scud C, Scud D...)
Arrow 3 protects vs. medium range ballistic missile intercepting them in space (Scud B, Scud C, Scud D...)
David's Sling should be better than Patriot Pac-3, Arrow-3 similar to THAAD, but cheaper.So David's Sling is more like S400+better capability against cruise missiles in its role , and Arrow 3 a dedicated ABM system ?
Has Arrow 3 capability upto against IRBM/MRBMs with >90% kill capability when facing multiple salvos of such ballistic missiles ?
Iron Dome should be enough for these. David's Sling can also deal with them.Also , against Tactical Ballistic Missile like Nasr of Pakistan , or say Guided Smerch rocket , which would be better , David's Sling or Iron Dome?
