US army successfully test-fires Israeli ‘Tamir’ missile from Iron Dome system

The US army last week carried out a successful test of the Israeli Tamir interceptor missile belonging to the Iron Dome system. In the test at an American missile range, the Tamir fired from a multi-mission launcher (MML) hit and destroyed its target, a drone. The head of the MML program, Lt. Col. Christopher Whitmark, said "In theory we can carry up to 6 different interceptors at one time per launcher. Right now we have only demonstrated the ability to integrate two of those interceptors," and "physically demonstrated the ability to shoot the Mini-Hit-to-Kill, the Stinger, and the Tamir which is an Israeli interceptor.”
