The system contributes overall to strengthening Germany’s national and alliance defence. IRIS-T SLM can engage various aerial threats, such as fighter jets, drones and cruise missiles at a range of up to 40 kilometers and an altitude of 20 kilometers. The system has already demonstrated its high operational capability in the context of its deployment in Ukraine.
