MBDA has been awarded a contract by the UAE Navy to supply additional Marte MK2/N anti-ship missiles for high-speed multi-role combat vessels. Each combat vessel will be equipped with four quad launchers for Marte Mk 2/N guided missiles.

This is a follow on to the contract signed in February 2009 for the supply of Marte MK2/N missiles.

The Marte Mk 2/N missile is able to strike targets at ranges in excess of 30 km, flying a fire-and-forget sea-skimming profile using mid-course inertial guidance and active radar homing.
