No idea... usually Swiss would think multiple times, before spending $billions for no good reason.
since it's an air defense system, they must have modeled some UFO invasion.
I mean the only black sheep, with history of firing missiles around, directly and indirectly through proxies is Iranian mullas, who are infect, good friend of Switzerland..... actually much more than friends!
