- Anti-air warfare : In the context of naval warfare, the mission of defending against aircraft and missiles, from platforms under naval command and control, possibly in coordination with other services and possibly defending land as well as sea areas.
- Anti-shipping missile : An air, surface (sea or land), or submarine-launched missile that can track and intercept a maneuvering ship target against the background of moving water
- Autocannon : A magazine-fed cannon that will load and fire continuously until its magazine is empty.
- County-class : Large destroyers of the 1960s and 1970s, built around the Sea Slug missile, primarily for anti-air warfare but with appreciable surface-to-surface capability; also guns and Exocet anti-shipping missiles; Wessex helicopter
- Cruise missile defense : A set of techniques for detecting, tracking, and neutralizing cruise missiles and their launching platforms. The techniques involved include sensors, and both kinetic and nonkinetic mechanisms for disrupting the missiles and their launchers.
- Destroyer : While the definition has evolved constantly, it is a multipurpose surface warship, generally less powerful than a cruiser, with capabilities against ship, aircraft, submarine, land, and sometimes ballistic missile targets
- Falklands War : 1982 war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over the Falkland Islands and their dependencies.
- French support for Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war : French technical assistance and sales of military and dual-use equipment, beginning in approximately 1975, to Iraq, and continuing through the Iran-Iraq War; France and the Soviet Union were the leading military suppliers to Iraq
- Guided missile : A weapon that flies through air or space, under its own power, which adjusts its course to hit its target.

- Precision-guided munition : A powered or unpowered weapon that adjusts its flight path to hit a specific target, with a circular error probability in the low number of meters, often less than the radius of destruction
- Raduga KSR-5 : A large, high-altitude, supersonic Russian air-to-surface missile, with a conventional or nuclear warhead, typically used against land or sea radar, or against ships
- Royal Navy : By long naval tradition, when there is no qualifier but "Royal", the navy being discussed is that of the United Kingdom.
- Soviet support for Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War : Soviet technical assistance and sales of military and dual-use equipment, beginning in approximately 1975, to Iraq, and continuing through the Iran-Iraq War; the Soviet Union and France were the leading military suppliers to Iraq

- Super Frelon helicopter : A French heavy-lift helicopter, primarily military but with some civilian roles
- Surface-to-surface missile : A guided missile launched from the land or water surface of the Earth, aimed at a surface target
