Description: Albatros is a ship-based air defense system based on Aspide and Aspide 2000 surface-to-air missiles which are stored in four-cell launcher/canister. It may be deemed as the Italian counterpart to US Navy's Sea Sparrow short range air defense system. Aspide is a derivative of AIM-7 Sparrow missile. Albatros is intended primarily to provide self-defense against airborne threats such as aircraft and cruise missiles.
The Italian Navy has deployed Albatros on many of its surface ships including Giuseppe Garibaldi aircraft carrier, Maestrale, Artigliere, Durand de la Penne and Minerva-class frigates.
