From the makers of IRON DOME: Israel to supply the PH Air Defense Missiles


It is not the famous and highly dependable Iron Dome, but for now this would do.

Finally the Philippines will have its own ground-based air defense system as Israel’s state-owned Rafael Advanced Defense Systems is supplying SPYDER.

The Philippines recently selected Rafael Advanced Defense Systems to supply the much needed equipment to the Philippine Air Force, according to a report by according to a report published by Israel Defense.

Once acquired, the Philippines will make a significant leap in its coastal defenses, particularly of the West Philippine Sea (WPS). It will be the first time the country will have ground-based air defense missiles.

Rafael is the same company that developed and manufactured Israel’s Iron Dome, which was reported to have a 90% success rate in intercepting enemy missiles.

Per reports since its installation in 2011, the Iron Dome has downed 2,400 rockets fired from Gaza. 

For the Philippines it would cost us P6 billion for three batteries of Rafael’s SPYDER—a ground-based mobile air defense system that can be installed on strategic locations facing the West Philippine Sea. The air defense system is expected to be delivered within 2021.
