ⓘ Type 90 Ship-to-Ship Missile

The Type 90 Ship-to-Ship Missile is a ship-launched anti-ship missile developed by Japans Mitsubishi Heavy Industries that entered service in 1990. It is a naval version of the truck-launched Type 88 missile, which in turn was developed from the air-launched Type 80 missile. The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force bought 384 of the missiles which it fitted to its Akizuki, Takanami, Hayabusa, and Murasame -class ships. With a range of 150 km, high subsonic speed and 260 kg warhead, the Type 90 is similar to the USs RGM-84 Harpoon missile, and is replacing Harpoon on Japanese ships.
