The W-21 "Spirit" cruise missile was designed after the 1996 incident to replace the the W-20 missile. They were designed to also be launched from VLS systems. The main focus behind its design was to improve the navigation and target designation to prevent another incident. It has a much greater range, but a reduced payload compared to the W-20. Also being less expensive it can be produced in greater numbers, and are set to replace the W-20 entirely in the future.
