Shipborne IR decoys

I had a giant pizza a few minutes ago and am really, really lazy and tired now.

That's probably why I'll show only some eye candy (shipborne decoy launchers in action) instead of any deep, mind-twisting thoughts.

OK, IR decoy systems like MUSS are apparently the reason why most anti-ship missiles use radar instead of IR sensors (Hsiung Feng 2 uses both - photo).
Well, chaff and jammers aren't much more nice to radar-guided missiles either.
