Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Shoots missiles straight out of the air, firing at them at the last instant before they hit- Installed on top of vehicles or installations, it fires downwards and not out at the projectile.

Currently saftey evaluated after many successful tests it might enter production next year.

As it works so well against e.g. ATGMs the developers thought to test it against something faster, namely the "explosively formed projectiles" that were one of the deadliest weapon of the Iraq insurgency. These bombs fire out armor-piercing jets of molten metal at a blinding two to four kilometers per second — 10 times as fast as the projectiles. Add it worked there as well in first tests...  champ

'Iron Curtain' defense smacks rockets in mid-flight.


Technology advances at a speed you wont believe it...
