An Arrow anti-ballistic missile interceptor is launched from its mobile platform during a joint Israel/United States developmental test at the Point Mugu Sea Range, Calif. This was the second in a series of tests following a previous successful test in which a target that represents a real threat to Israel was intercepted and destroyed. The test was part of the on going Arrow System Improvement Program. U.S. Navy photo (RELEASED)
(Worthy News) - The Defense Ministry and the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) conducted a test of the Arrow 3 missile-defense system on Thursday morning.
The interceptor missile was launched from the Palmachim Beach towards the sea, aimed at a Sparrow target missile fired by an IAF jet.
A year ago, a similar test of the Arrow 3 failed, and Thursday morning's test was done after lessons were learned from the previous one. [ Source ]
