    The Perseus missile will be the most sophisticated weapon in its class travelling at Mach 3 or 2,000 miles an hour, three times the speed of existing weapons.

    In midflight it can deploy a further two baby missiles that can help it straddle a ship with devastating firepower or seek out extra targets or confuse surface-to-air missile batteries.

    One engineer on the project unveiled at the Paris Air Show, said: "This is the stealth bomber of missiles and can penetrate enemy defences like nothing else."

    The £800,000 Perseus, designed to replace the existing Exocet and Storm Shadow weapons, will be invisible to radars until the very last few seconds before the two ton weapon impacts.

    New missile cuts civilian deaths

    A revolutionary missile system which, it is claimed, will significantly reduce the danger of civilian casualties was unveiled on Tuesday at the Paris air show.

    Details of the Perseus programme were announced on the day that Nato admitted responsibility for an airstrike which killed nine civilians. The alliance's secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, expressed his "deep regrets" over the deaths which may have been caused by "weapons-system failure".

    The manufacturers of the Perseus, MBDA, insists that the system's "smart technology" will safeguard against such mistakes. The guidance system will be programmed for the missile to divert and self-destruct if it "sees" that changes have taken place in the expected landscape. The Perseus, using "stealth" technology to avoid radar detection, will be supersonic with a top speed of 3,200kmph and a range of 300km. Travelling low enough to skim the waves at sea and 20ft above land, it could be used against both naval and land targets.

    The production date for the missiles, which are expected to cost around £800,000 each, is yet to be decided. The manufacturer claims that, on completion, the system would be able to penetrate almost all existing defensive shields.

    MBDA is involved in a number of Anglo-French projects in the pipeline following the agreement reached between Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron last year.

    Maybe for the export variant. Who cares about the range!! By 2030 we would be using energy based weapons.

    MBDA developed Meteor and why is this cruise missile taking so long for them ?

    It is no faster than ASMP-A and half the range. Change warheads to conventional targets would be easier.
