Germany ’s intended to buy Israel" anti -boiled shields "
Israel’s "Arrow-3" air defense system conducts simulation tests.
According to German media reports, the German government plans to finalize a specific plan for buying Israeli air defense anti -missile systems in the near future. From March 27th to 31st, the German Ministry of Defense Inspection Team observed the simulation test of the "Arrow-3" air defense anti-missile system on the spot and initially formulated a procurement plan of 2 billion euros (1 euro or 7 yuan). After just applying for the purchase of the US F-35 fighter, Germany announced the new military purchase plan, which has aroused external attention. It is reported that Germany’s current "anti -boiled shield" has loopholes. Although it purchased close -range air defense equipment in 2018, the mid -distance air defense plan was stranded last year without having long -distance air defense capabilities. At present, Germany is responsible for the 12 "Patriot" systems in charge of mid -distance air defense. Since the 1980s, it has been in service. After multiple upgrades, it is planned to retire in 2025 and serve until 2030.
This time Germany’s decision to buy a new air defense anti -missile system is to make up for the long -distance air defense short board. At first, Germany was very interested in Israel’s "iron dome" air defense system.
After years of actual combat inspection, the system has deployed flexible and low cost. However, the opponents believe that although the "iron dome" air defense system is rich in combat experience, the use intensity is not high and cannot provide farther distance protection. After the German Prime Minister Tsurtz announced a significant increase in national defense expenditure, all parties unanimously decided to purchase Israel’s new "arrow-3" air defense anti-missile system. The "Arrow-3" air defense anti-missile system is jointly developed by Israel Aerospace Industry Corporation and the American Boeing Corporation. It can not only respond to various types of aircraft threats, and intercept ballistic missiles outside the atmosphere. Its main features are high interception accuracy, strong continuous tracking capacity, and multiple interceptions.
The system consists of "Super Green Song" warning radar, battlefield control center and missile launch device. Among them, the longest detection distance of the "Super Green Pine" warning radar reached 800 kilometers, which can provide 24 -hour uninterrupted monitoring. After deployment in three locations in Germany, it can form a network covering the whole territory. Waiting for the country.
In January of this year, during the test of the "Arrow-3" air defense anti-missile system, a ballistic missile was successfully intercepted during the US test, and the strength was verified.
According to the plan, Germany will complete the deployment of the "Arrow-3" air defense anti-missile system by 2025. The system sells for about $ 100 million, and an intercepting the price of about $ 3 million, and counted the cost of training and maintenance. Germany’s budget can purchase about 9 air defense systems.
Once the deployment is completed, Germany will rapidly enhance medium and long -range air defense strengths in a short period of time, and set up low, medium and high -three air defense networks.
According to reports, Germany’s choice of buying Israel’s air defense anti -missile system was not rising for a while, and the two countries had long cooperated in the air defense field.
Earlier, Israeli Aerospace Industry Corporation and Germany Hunoste jointly completed the upgrade for the air defense radar system of Germany’s land, sea, and air forces. In June last year, Germany purchased 69 sets of "Watch" mobile radar from Israel to enhance ground battlefield monitoring and early warning capabilities.
More importantly, Israel’s air defense anti -missile system not only meets German demand in terms of performance, but also adopts NATO general standards, which can perfectly integrate into the regional air defense system.
Germany has recently changed from independent research and development to outsourcing military equipment, which is helpless.
Taking this procurement air defense anti -missile system as an example, Germany itself has a research and development plan for land -based air defense missile systems, that is, the next generation of tactical air defense systems. The system can cope with the threat of helicopters, drones, cruise missiles and short -range missiles. It was originally planned to replace the "Patriot" air defense system. However, the above project was stopped due to tight funding last year. Even if it restarts in the future, the United States still needs the core data of intercepting missiles.
Moreover, the opinions of the United States and Italy participated in the R & D tasks are all left, resulting in slow project progress. Germany was worried that the system had been outdated in the future equipment forces, so it decided to directly purchase the "Arrow-3" air defense anti-missile system. This exposes the key issues that Germany does not master the core technologies of advanced weapons and equipment. In general, independent research and development means long -term investment, long waiting, and other variables. Direct purchase means quickly solving problems but subject to others.
In the future, how to resolve this contradiction when changing other weapons in Germany is worthy of continuous attention.
