About the Centurion C-RAM – Land-Based Phalanx® Weapon System:

The Centurion Weapon System is a land-based Phalanx® weapon system capable of countering insurgent activities by intercepting rockets, artillery and mortar rounds in the air before impact, effectively eliminating any damage they might cause. The U.S. Navy uses the same ability of the Phalanx® sea-based system as its point-defense weapon to protect the fleet from low-flying cruise missiles and other air and surface threats. The Phalanx® can be interfaced with a multitude of sensors and systems designed to provide overarching protection for sites on the ground. The first C-RAM was sent to Iraq in late 2006, to protect the Green Zone (the large area in Baghdad turned into an American base). It was found that C-RAM could knock down 70-80 percent of the rockets and mortar shells fired within range of its cannon.
