Video: David's Slingshot at the Paris Air Show

Refael and Raytheon showed off David's Slingshot, a new missile system meant to complement Iron Dome, which will be available generally within two years.

Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.

Co-developed by US firm Raytheon and Israeli company Rafael, David's Sling is a missile defense system designed to safeguard Israeli citizens from attack.
The Sling is capable of intercepting incoming rockets more than 160 kilometers away.
Until now all that's been seen of it is a brief video handout of a secret desert test last November.
But this week Yossi Horowitz, business development director at Rafael, showed off one of the missiles at the Paris Air Show.
Also known as the Stunner, the missile is part of a three-tier system. It will be used as a bridge between the existing Iron Dome system, which intercepts short-range rockets, and the Arrow, targeting ballistic missiles.
