Penguin Anti Ship Missile

Penguin is the world`s leading anti-ship missile on naval helicopters. The missile is designed for use in the littorals as well as on open sea.

The Penguin missile is a state of the art, highly effective weapon with an accurate navigation system and sophisticated passive infra-red homing array. This ensures its ability to operate in close proximity to land whilst being immune to all known radar countermeasures, IR-decoys and jamming.

The combination of covert targeting, passive flight path and selectable waypoint manoeuvres makes the Penguin an effective weapon against most surface combatants.

Penguin has been developed to meet the complex operating environment encountered in the Norwegian littorals, notably in their ability to navigate through archipelagos and across the terrain, and in their deployment of highly discriminative passive target homing technology.
