Description: The Mk 41 is the standard Vertical Launch System employed by the US Navy fighting ships to store and launch a wide spectrum of naval missiles. It is installed below deck on surface ships in 13 different configurations ranging from a single module with 8-cell to 16 modules with 128-cell.

The Mk 41 Strike Length (Mk 41 SL) is the largest Mk 41 version currently deployed aboard US Navy ships. It can accommodate any existing missile in the US Navy Inventory.

The Mk 41 VLS has been adopted by the navies of Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Republic of Korea (RoK), Norway, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

As of early 2006, the Mk 41 VLS Baseline VII is the current production model and was introduced in 2004. More than 11,000 Mk 41 missiles cells have been ordered to date for 178 ships in 11 world navies.

The BAE Systems Mk 14 canister is used to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles through the Mk 41 vertical launching system. The US Navy had ordered 1,036 Mk 14 canisters until April 2007.
