The RIM-50 Typhon LR was a missile that was intended to be a Terrier missile–sized replacement to the Talos missile to be used with the Typhon combat system.[1] The RIM-50 was canceled in 1963 along with the medium range RIM-55, when the Typhon combat system was canceled. The technology in development for this missile was incorporated in to the RIM-67 Standard missile.
