IAF takes possession of David’s Sling air defense system

The Defense Ministry and US Missile Defense Agency began handing over control of the David’s Sling air defense system to the Israel Air Force on Tuesday.

The development comes after a series of successful trials were completed in December, said the Ministry’s Home Administration, which is in charge of developing missile defenses.

The IAF’s Air Defense Branch has now begun receiving the main components of David’s Sling.
