"Skeet Shooting in Israel"...

That's the name of a short video somebody sent me. It features the Israeli "Iron Dome" defense system in action.
I think he got it from the Horowitz site, but I really don't care.

I have a technical question....

The video shows a hose-like stream of projectiles going after several different rockets. Thousands of rounds. Those things are 6 inches in diameter.

What happens to those rounds that miss? Where are they falling?
Anybody know?

1. Iron Dome is a missile system

Doesn’t sound like what your describing.

9. OK.. note the comments. Some say it's CGI.

Some say it's a video of something else. Only the Israeli navy uses the Phalanx system...which this appears to be.

My question remains... What happens in the impact area for all those projectiles?... Where are they falling?

3. Sounds like a Phalanx or Centurion system.

Iron Dome is missile based.

Did it look like R2D2 with a gun? Like this? -

If it was something like that, then the rounds hit the ground somewhere, just like every other gun.

6. The land based systems have fused rounds that explode before hitting the ground

Similar sea based systems have solid rounds that fall into the water.

7. I think the rounds are 20mm in diameter.
