LOL I saw a pic of a guy launching his improvised aerial delivery incendiary device, a bunch of hydrogen party balloons with a small payload. Trying to shoot them down kinda like trying to swat a gnat with an ICBM.
The economic asymmetry is breathtaking!
Probably a ratio of 1,000,000 : 1 in expenditure in that one clip alone.
The question once again arises regarding the cost of a single Iron Dome interceptor (about $50,000, according to some sources) compared to the insignificant cost of each rocket.
The senior source at Rafael said that "the question of the economic worthwhileness of the Iron Dome system was decided long ago. The actual 'value' of each interception is not determined by the cost of the rocket, but rather by the cost we would have paid if we did not have a defense system. Beyond the human lives saved, which are priceless, even with regard to this round it is easy to imagine the damage that would have been sustained if life in the central region of the country had been paralyzed because of concerns regarding rocket attacks. Even Ben-Gurion international airport might have been closed down, so the benefit exceeds the costs several times over."
According to reports, due to the deployment along the border and the news coming out in the foreign media of a ground incursion, Hamas and Islamic Jihad sent their first-line of defense into the tunnels to start taking up positions. These were the anti-tank missile teams and mortar squads meant to strike at incoming Israeli ground forces.
What these Hamas operatives did not know was that there was no ground offensive. Instead, once they were out of the tunnels, they were exposed to Israeli aircraft. Within minutes, the “Metro” attack went ahead. This led to speculation that the tweet about the ground incursion was intentional and made to get Hamas to believe it was safe to enter the tunnels.
Success in this case is a reduction of risk to an acceptable level. That's much easier to achieve with defenses than a offensive victory using advanced weapons.I guess it would be useless though, if a cluster missle splits in middle of the air or a high speed rocket happens.
having upper hand in equipments dosn't always guarantee the success:
