The PENGUIN missile is a helicopter launched version of the Norwegian MK 2 MOD 3 missile which has been modified and designated as an MK 2 MOD 7. The Penguin was developed by and for the Norwegian Navy. The Penguin missiles are designed and manufactured by Norsk Forsvarsteknologi (NFT) A/S located in Kongsberg, Norway. The Penguin anti-ship missile was conceived in the early 1960's as a ship-borne, anti-invasion defence system. Penguin was the first fire-and-forget anti-ship missile system to be developed in the Western world. Penguin MKI became operational with the Norwegian and Turkish navies in 1972. The MK2 entered service in 1980 with the Norwegian, Hellenic and Swedish navies. Since then, continuous development programs have adapted the concept to the technical evolution of surface warfare.
Any way they're nice pics and the HAF guys did a great job !
Think so? Well, maybe some of them really DID a great job. But, if you click HERE you'll read a review for some others that had the brilland idea to turn a fighter aircraft into a crap. I'm not willing to hide behind my finger. I'm not keeping this "inside". Enough! These stupid personel, must take their lesson.
Watching this picture and considering that the ZU-23 is made and used to engage aerial targets, I'm sure that these soldiers must had a good deal with enemy's aircraft & heli pilots, to fly/approach to them from a specific direction ONLY.
Camo paint looks nice on demo pictures (even when you forget to paint hands too) but a camouflage net placed over the cannon and blocking the ability to observe, rotate & shoot, cannot stop an enemy air raid. On the other hand, a 360 degree rotating able ZU-23 can!
