The Type 90 Ship-to-Ship Missile (90式艦対艦誘導弾, SSM-1B) is a ship-launched anti-ship missile developed by Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries that entered service in 1992. It is a naval version of the truck-launched Type 88 (SSM-1) missile, which in turn was developed from the air-launched Type 80 (ASM-1) missile. The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force bought 384 of the missiles which it fitted to its Akizuki, Takanami, Hayabusa, and Murasame-class ships.
With a range of 150 km (81 nmi), high subsonic speed and 225 kg (496 lb) warhead, the Type 90 is similar to the US's RGM-84 Harpoon missile, and is replacing Harpoon on Japanese ships.
