This new Mach 3 capable sea skimmer will be a potent addition to the defense of the Japan as it will be deployed on F-2's,at sea and on land.

Could this missile be fired from Canadian Navy vessels and Hornets ? If so that would bring a super capability to the table.

If so yes,but that's the case for anyone who'll has this missile,only thing which is bothering me now is the range about 80 NM(or more)seems too short,i mean the ship f.e. which fires these missiles could come under attack itself due to this,or am i wrong in thinking that?  :P

Harpoon has an open source range of 67NM. Exocet has a range of approx 100NM.  It's right in the standard range it seems.  Also payload (exocet is light, harpoon is heavier) and speed are both issues.  At Mach 3 though, that's fast.
