The Italian-French anti-ship missiles of the Otomat family belong to the relatively little-known types, which, however, have seen considerable expansion. The commercial success was also reflected in the long range of these missiles, which, in combination with sophisticated fire control systems, allowed them to attack targets far beyond the radar horizon.
The development of anti-ship missiles Otomat continued in the 80s and 90s with new variants, such as Otomach 2, Otomat Mk.3 or TESEO 3. However, none of them received serial production, unlike other related weapons. These are Milas missile torpedoes, which together with the latest version of the Otomat Mk.2 Block IV are probably the last members of the family.
Seawolf is the first representative of Western naval anti-aircraft systems also designed to destroy anti-ship control systems. The system has achieved considerable expansion in the Royal Navy , but despite the hopes placed in it by its manufacturer, it has not been able to make a significant impact abroad. The exemplary start of an operational career combined with a successful combat deployment in the Falkland conflict did not help.
