The UK Ministry of Defense (MoD) has signed off on acquiring a critical new anti-ship missile for Royal Navy Type 23 frigates and Type 45 destroyers.

Both sets of ships are to be equipped with Norwegian manufacturer Kongsberg’s Naval Strike Missile (NSM), with a first installation to occur in just over 12 months.

The MoD made the announcement on Nov. 23 explaining in a press release that a total of 11 ships would receive the weapon, due to replace Harpoon Block 1C surface-to-surface munitions.
