An intricate network of Israel's missile defense tech faced a serious test of its mettle Saturday night, downing '99 percent' of an aerial assault launched from Iran.

Approximately 170 Iranian drones, 120 ballistic missiles and over 30 cruise missiles had been launched from the Iranian territory in the attack, soaring over 1,100 miles.

Iran's airborne phalanx was repelled by ground-based anti-air missiles with names like the 'Iron Dome,' 'David's Sling' and 'Arrow-3,' the latest hardware in Israel's frequently updated national defense arsenal.

Below, an overview of the equipment Israel has developed, sometimes with the help of American military contractors, and how it keeps bombardments in check.
