The United States Department of Defense is considering acquiring Israel’s vaunted “Iron Dome” missile defense system, according the daily newspaper Yediot Ahronot.
The report suggested the US could use the Iron Dome to defend assets both in North America and in Eastern Europe.
To date, the US military has no comparable system to counter short-range missiles and mortars.
The Americans also said they would be purchasing the Israeli-developed “Windbreaker” tank armor. The system has been used for years to protect Israel’s Merkava main battle tanks from shoulder-launched anti-tank missiles.
