PARIS (BNS): European missile maker MBDA has bagged a contract to supply the Marte MK2/N anti-ship missiles to the UAE Navy.

This is a follow-on contract to a previous one awarded to MBDA in 2009 for the supply of Marte missiles.

Each high speed multi-role combat vessel of the UAE Navy will be equipped with four box launchers for the Marte Mk 2/N guided missiles, the missile manufacturer announced on February 20. 

The short-range weapon is capable of striking targets at ranges in excess of 30 km, flying a fire-and-forget sea-skimming profile using midcourse inertial guidance and active radar homing.
