Missile C seems to have the high performance demanded by the French. Who broke up the international project when this was not chosen.
So this became the French Crotale system??

I think it's not that simple because if memory serves crotale was an Army project, though from my reading the NG and later versions are much closer to MN requirements.

So it's more like the MN walked away and ended up compromising anyway, but in typical French fashion.

Musings on System C,  SAM.72 and MSAM.

Yeap ranging off topic.
It's not a bad alternative so start a thread.

That said perhaps one should consider

Fair call so why not.

Actually not sure where the topic would belong as Tartar is a real system that was built and used in a multitude of modernised and new build warships around the world.  I suppose Naval - unbuilt projects, as Tartar was a real option for a number of unbuilt projects, versions of built designs and upgrades of existing ships, it was even an option for a planned upgrade to a design that was never built.  At the same time it is also ideal for speculative builds and upgrades.

Any suggestions / guidance?

RN wanted Q-band SARH for their version of Tartar. I think that makes it properly Alternative history.
