The Bristol Bloodhound is a British surface-to-air missile developed during the 1950s as the UK's main air defence weapon, and was in large-scale service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the forces of four other countries. Part of sweeping changes to the UK's defence posture, the Bloodhound was intended to protect the RAF's V bomber bases to preserve the deterrent force, attacking bombers that made it past the Lightning interceptor force. Bloodhound Mk. I entered service in December 1958, the first British guided weapon to enter full operational service. The entire defence was to be handed to a longer-range missile code named Blue Envoy, but when this was ultimately cancelled, parts of its design were worked into Bloodhound Mk. II. The Mk. I began to be replaced by the Mk. II starting in 1964, roughly doubling the range of the missile.
