Sort of puts the Kamakazi concept on the back burner.

Israeli Phalanx Close-in air defense system (by Raytheon) engaging incoming missiles.

I am guessing that this is part of Israel's "Iron Dome" defense system.  There appear to be at least two high speed guns out of view of the camera, maybe more.  At least 50cal. or maybe 20mm for the range they are shooting.  The white can in the foreground appears to be for close-in fire, in the event the longer range guns do not do the job.  All this is radar/computer controlled, no human action except to turn it on.

What we are seeing are real shoot-downs, rockets launched probably from Lebanon aimed at Tel Aviv or other populated targets.

This is cutting-edge American technology.

The video shows it's a video game.  It is not a war in Syria or a real war on the ground, but a video game.  But a great video shows how Defense systems shoot down drones and missiles defense systems drop drones and missiles.

On the other hand if you Yahoo or Google or go to YouTube you will get all kinds of video’s of real action.  Just search "CIWS Phalanx”
