A significant number of countries have, or are seeking to acquire, guided missiles that can be launched at sufficient distance to allow the attacking personnel—and the high-value platforms from which it launches the missiles (e.g. aircraft, land based launchers or ships)—to evade defensive fire. Regardless of the specific design of the missile—whether they are rocket propelled and wingless ballistic missiles or cruise missiles equipped with air-breathing engines—these missiles are generally capable of attacking targets with a high degree of accuracy and are difficult to defend against. The military significance of such long-range missiles has been underlined by their use by, for example, the United States and the United Kingdom in Iraq in 2003 and by the USA, UK, France, Italy and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Libya in 2011.1
