SPYDER is a vehicle-based mobile air defence system developed by  Rafael Advanced Defense Systems  and  Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) , with Refael being it’s primary contractor. It is a surface-to-air missile system. The system can be fitted atop multiple trucks, and fires Refael’s Python-5 and Derby missiles. The SPYDER-SR uses the EL/M-2106 ATAR radar while the SPYDER-MR incorporates the EL/M-2084 MMR radar.

The SPYDER has been reported as used in the 2008 Russian-Georgian war by Georgia, by India to shoot down a Pakistani surveillance drone in 2019 over Gujarat, and the same year Indian forces accidently shot an Indian air force helicopter with it, killing the 6 soldiers it carried.
