Modern antiship missiles in Europe?

I'm wondering what to use as armament for my Airbus 319 MPA. Harpoons would be an obvious choice, but are there alternatives?

I've seen that Taurus has a secondary anti-ship role, would Storm Shadow be usable as well?

Well MBDA have just announced Perseus, and the Norwegians are doing the NSW which is the next gen supersonic ASM. Not sure if the French use SCALP as ASM as they still have Exocet.

Quotethere is: BAe Sea Eagle, MBB Kormorant, Exocet, Sea Skua...

Sure, but most of those are older designs. I'm looking for a missile that's appropriate for an aircraft that would enter service around 2015.

Whatever happened to the supersonic AshM that the French were developing? Something like "ASMS"..... :unsure:

ASMP? That has a nuclear warhead, is still in use by the French.

You could arm it with some Moskits, maybe acquired in some sort of French/Russian deal, like they did with the warships.

The Marte Mk2/S entered service in recent-ish years, I think there are some developments of that in the pipeline?

Here we go, longer renge version in the Mk2/ER, fixed wing launched version in the Mk2/SA:

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Not to menition RBS-15, if Sweden joins NATO or gets involved in a EU defensive alliance.

Or for neutral users who need a aircraft for maritime patrolling.

Depending upon operator (though assuming European), you could have the following:

RBS-15 Mk III or Mk IV
Exocet - still in use
Naval Strike Missile (NSM) - my recommendation!
Possibly a variant of Storm Shadow/SCALP
Possibly a variant of TAURUS KEPD 350


Also, don't entirely ignore Harpoon - like Exocet, it still finds users.

Since Harpoon was mentioned, how about SLAM-ER?  Funky looks & still has an anti-ship capability IIRC.

Germany uses it (Mk.III) shipborne on the K130-class, and Thailand has it "on order".

Thales Light weight multi role missile is anti ship as well.

Be interesting to see a version of Brimstone and Stormshadow

Something like Brimstone is too small, really - it'd be good against patrol boats or FACs, but I don't think it would be able to sink anything larger.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<
