This is actual Israeli Iron Dome engaging incoming missiles. I want a few of these.

I wonder how you'd go about reloading just one of those things. No tactical reloads here ladies and gentlemen, just keep shoveling in the ammo.

The U.N. thinks Israel shooting Hamas missiles out of the sky involves "disproportionate response".

That's because it is. Lots of these fake videos on YT for people to gather clicks and followers.

Phalanx has been standard armament for quite some time on US Navy aircraft carriers and destroyer type vessels. I'm betting the Isrealis use them more often than our Navy, and probably have made improvements on the weapon system.

They don't work well on torpedoes. :biggrinjester:

I don’t know what it’s from, but some of the smoke trails and impact explosions (especially the one around 2:10) look really fake to me.
I am not a lawyer, nor have I played one on TV, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, nor should anything I say be taken as legal advice. If it is important that any information be accurate, do not use me as the only source.

Not a link to the game, sorry.
But how about a link to the real Iron Dome anti-missile defense system? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Dome

I can ask one of my gamer friends, he will probably know where this bad CGI footage is from.

You guys beat me to it. The giveaway was when they showed the rockets hitting the ground. You could tell that the explosions were fake. Iron Dome doesn’t use a Gatling gun. It shoots a rocket.

ACTUAL footage:
• Give me Liberty or I'll get up and get it myself.
• I don't carry because of the odds, I carry because of the stakes.
• My dream is to have lived my life so well that future generations of leftists will demand my name be removed from buildings.
• Independent Minarchist.

The Vulcan/Phalanx uses a 20mm Vulcan cannon, firing 3200rds per minute of depleted uranium shells, the Phalanx radar system tracks the out going round and incoming target and bring the two to "interface" on our naval vessels when operating in a hostile environment the system is set to Automatic, it will automatically track any airborne or surface target at 2000yds and engage that target at 1000yds unless overridden by the weapons control officer.
