Encyclopedia > Blue water

Blue Water was a code name for a British nuclear missile under development in the 1960s. Blue Water, like Blue Streak, was a planned homegrown nuclear deterrent for use against the Soviet Union. Unlike Blue Streak, Blue Water was envisaged as a surface to surface missile to be used against ground troops: a battlefield nuclear weapon. Blue Water was planned to be operational by 1966 but in 1962 Prime Minister Harold Macmillan scrapped the project.
