The Iron Dome is an Israeli air defense system classified as Counter-RAM (counter rocket, -artillery and -mortar), jointly developed by the Israel Defense Forces and Rafael. This system consists of a command unit, detection/tracking radar, and multiple missile launchers, and can be moved by towing or loading. Development of the Iron Dome began in 2005, and it was deployed in 2011, successfully intercepting rockets in April of the same year. The U.S. Army introduced two battalions in 2019 for the defense of overseas camps, and is currently testing it in the mainland United States and Guam.
This model kit from Magic Factory combines precise details with ease of assembly. The launcher and data link antenna can be assembled in either the standby or firing mode; the hydraulic rod is made of metal. The Tamil anti-aircraft missile is included. The kit can be built as either the Israeli or U.S. military versions; photo-etched parts and decals are included. The first production run of this kit includes two resin figures of Israeli female soldiers as a bonus! (This item is only included in the first production of this kit.
