I think it should stay Arrow missile, not Arrow missiles, just like all the other missile categories, and categories of families of military equipment in general. For example, we have "Category:MIM-104 Patriot" - nobody mentions the PAC-2, GEM/T, PAC-3. Alternatively I suggest "Arrow missile defense system" or like.

This is the category naming rule, such as in its parent categories like Category:Missiles of Israel. I will change the other missile --> missiles too. Only the proper names don't become plural: "MIM-104 Patriot" stays like this, "MIM-104 Patriot" missile, would become "MIM-104 Patriot missiles". Bear in mind that, as you changed already correctly, that a category name must give a rough idea what it countains and that pure acronyms are not allowed. So ADM-141 TALD is not correct and should have the additional "missiles" word.
I don't think that the "Arrow missile defense system", which should be a workaround, nor Arrow defense program(s) as they can all exist in several instances. --Foroa (talk) 14:11, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
If you are going to change ALL the other missile --> missiles categories ALL OVER the wikicommons, then fine. I support standardization. NatanFlayer (talk) 23:39, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
