Worth reading about: The Penguin anti-ship missile
When operated aboard warships armed with their own battery of anti-ship missiles, naval helicopters carrying Penguin missiles expand the range of options for the naval commander. This is because the naval commander and his principal warfare officer (PWO) can count on two types of missiles with different performance envelopes and characteristics during fire missions.
The heli-borne Penguin is optimised for operations in waterways where islands or nearby shipping make missile engagements challenging to plan and execute for the PWO.
The Penguin can be programmed to fly dog leg flights to avoid obstructions as it speeds towards its target.
