Rapier is a British surface-to-air missile replacing other anti-aircraft weapons in army service and guns for low-altitude targets. Used against longer-range and higher-altitude targets. As the expected air threat moved from medium-altitude strategic missions to low-altitude strikes Rapier was updated to the Rapier 2000 system.
