The good thing about the recent skirmish with the Hezzies is that it allows the Israeli's the chance to see weaknesses in their armaments and planning in order to correct them. Although the political establishment failed them, dont think that the military establishment will.

One would think that the fire control problem of having a tank shoot down an incoming missile had been solved since it is a problem that ships have successfully dealt with for decades.

One could picture a self contained system, in principle, similar to the Phoenix system currently aboard some Naval ships. The probability of kill is in the 99% region and the engineering and fire control problems are pellucid.
