The Otomat/Teseo is a long range anti-ship missile first built by the Italian company Oto Melara jointly with Matra and now made by MBDA Missile Systems.


The name comes from the names of the two originally builders (OTO Melara and MATra) and, for the Italian version, from the Italian word for Theseus (the mythical founder-king of Athens).

 

More than 1000 missiles have been delivered for use from ships and coastal batteries. Today, about 100 ships from 11 Navies are armed with Otomat SSMís - providing long range maritime superiority against naval and land targets.
