Harpoon is an over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile manufactured by Boeing’s Defence, Space & Security business division, which is capable of performing both land-strike and anti-ship missions. Its accurate navigation solution allows users to discriminate target ships from islands or other nearby land masses or ships.

This all-weather missile can engage a wide variety of land-based targets, including coastal defense sites, surface-to-air missile sites, aircraft, port or industrial facilities, and naval ships anchored in ports. The missile can be deployed from submarines and surface ships such as fast patrol boats, destroyers and frigates as well as mobile land-based truck platforms and a variety of U.S. military aircraft and mobile land-based truck platforms.
