Initially code-named Red Duster, development of the Bloodhound S.A.M. began in 1949 as a joint project between Bristol Aircraft and Ferranti Electronics as the UK's main air defence weapon. The Bloodhound Mk. I entered British service in December 1958 and the last Mk. II missile squadron stood down in July 1991, although Swiss examples remained operational until 1999.
