Marketing flim-flam. There's no way a credible anti-ship warhead could be fitted into such a small weapon. Anti-patrol boat, maybe, but that's an expensive way to plink them...

I think the intention is for mission kill on multiple systems, rather than letting enough water in to sink the ship.

If so the Typhoon is a truly remarkable aircraft, but are there enough?
Out Bomb the Coltishall Wing ?
Technology really has moved on this much, and rightly so.
The Typhoon in current RAF service would stand a chance of being a truly remarkable aircraft if it had 'AESA Plus' - RIGHT NOW.

Because it doesn't - it cannot be. ... How long will they still have to wait ?

'Chase Away' and Decorational purposes only. All the real players have AESA. I weep because it's (NOT) a national embarrassment.
