StrikeMaster is an Australian low-risk solution for the deployment of anti-ship missiles launched from ground platforms. StrikeMaster is part of the government’s LAND 4100 Phase 2 project. According to Australian sources, the production and delivery of StrikeMaster could happen very quickly.

The NSM is a very flexible system, which can be launched from a variety of platforms against a variety of targets on sea and land. The airframe design and the high thrust to weight ratio give the NSM extremely good manoeuvrability. The missile is completely passive and has proven its excellent sea-skimming capabilities and with its advanced terminal manoeuvres, it will survive the enemy air defences. The Autonomous Target Recognition (ATR) of the seeker ensures that the correct target is detected, recognized and hit, at sea or on land.StrikeMaster is an Australian low-risk solution for the deployment of anti-ship missiles launched from ground platforms.
