just reading a piece recently about styx ss-n-2 antiship missile usage ,came into service 1960ish
so thinking when did the us navy start installing countermeasures (chaff/infra-red decoys etc to deal with these and future missiles what would have been the first systems in operation back then?
same question for british missile defences

The Perry-class (from 1975) were built with Mk36 SRBOC chaff and flare launchers, and I think the Knox-class (from 1965) were as well.

The Knox-class also mounted an electronic countermeasures system, which (by the designation code) incorporated Electronic Surveillance Systems (ESM) and jammers.

Similar situation for RN ships, except the decoy launcher was the multi barrelled Corvus system
