German PATRIOT tractor launchers
The "PATRIOT" is a medium-range "ground-to-air" missile system that can shoot down a tactical ballistic missile. This anti-missile defense is managed by the LUFTWAFFE, the German Air Force.

This technology comes from the USA. One distinguishes on this photograph a center of command of shooting with its radar "AN/MPQ 53". This radar can detect a bomber at 180 kilometers, a warhead at 60 kilometers and track up to 10 targets. It can simultaneously process up to six different targets in tracking.

Germany has 24 "PATRIOT" squadrons comprising 192 launcher units.

In 2012, two German "PATRIOT" batteries were deployed by Germany, with the support of NATO and 400 German soldiers, along the Turkish-Syrian border, in response to rocket fire, coming from Syria and causing several deaths in Turkish border villages. They were intended to have a defensive role, and deter the Syrian regime from using chemical weapons against the rebels.
