The Mark 22 guided missile launching system (GMLS) is a variation of the Mark 13 launcher which has only the inner 16 round storage ring of the Mk-13 launcher. It was deployed on US-designed, Baleares-class Spanish frigates. and US Navy Brooke class frigates. Another major difference is that on the Mk-22 the magazine is non-rotating. The launcher rotates over the desired missile and it is then hoisted onto the rail. On the Mk-13 the magazine rotates under the launcher.
