Description: MBDA Marte is a lightweight, fire and forget, multiplatform-launched, subsonic, sea-skimming anti-ship missile. It features a 70 kg semi-piercing warhead with high explosive effects detonated by impact or proximity. It was introduced in the 1980s with the Italian Armed Forces.

The Marte Mk2/S guidance system depends on the INS supported by GPS and a radar altimeter. In the terminal phase the missile is guided through inputs from an active radar homing seeker and performs evasive maneuvers to escape ship's close-in defenses. The missile is suitable for use in littoral warfare and heavy countermeasures environments.

The Marte Mk2 missile is in service with Italy's SH-3D helicopters, Marte Mk2/S has been designed to meet the operational requirements of maritime models of NH-90 and EH-101 helicopters. Marte Mk2/S was expected to achieve Initial Operational Capability (IOC) with the Italian Navy EH101 helicopter in the 2007-2008 timeframe.
