US Army to buy some Iron Domes for short-term use

“The Iron Dome will be assessed and experimented as a system that is currently available to protect deployed US military service members against a wide variety of indirect fire threats and aerial threats,” the US Army said in a statement on Wednesday. A limited number of systems will be bought while other options are weighed for long-term needs. Binyamin Netanyahu Prime Minister and Defense Minister hailed the US army’s decision as representing the strong and stable ties with the United States and the rising reputation of Israel’s capabilities.

    Each Patriot missile costs almost $3 million, whereas each Iron Dome missile is less than $100,000. They are much smaller and more mobile, too.
