Hey USMC! Need a compact, highly mobile & effective anti-air system? How about the Swedish RBS-98 short range AA system: Iris-T“Ziraf missile + ”Giraffe-1X“ radar

I don't know which one I'm more excited about.  The Missile System or the Giraffe Radar.

You scatter a few of those around the battlefield and you have an auto win. In essence you have your own radar picket without the need of outside assets. The cost might be prohibitive but in the age of cruise missiles and soon hypersonics it might prove essential to give a minute or two extra warning time.

The missiles are interesting.  Haven't read up on the Iris but it looks alot like the missile the Brits are adopting.  I don't know about its effectiveness but if its the same then its proving to be extremely popular in Europe.
