sorry HS93...but the English language is nearly as complicated as naval ordnance

1. the WIKKI bird [Ikkara] launcher whilst mounted on the deck & hence above water.....was actually controlled by the underwater people as thats where the 1/2 hearted WIKKI bird landed & then proceeded on its path  O0 {-) %% {:-{ :(( >:-o

2. somewhere back in time  :o :D someone also sold the system to the Argentinians & a few other unsuspecting navies........could the sales person have been Ronald McDonald?????????    %% %% ........Derek

PS...I had no dealings with those underwater things...... :P

HS93...I have re-read my posting from today at 09:14:35 AM as below....... :-) ...it's pretty simple in content & context & totally self explanatory.....Derek

PS1...unless you are talking about my spelling?... & yes the IKKI bird does have a double K....& hence we refer to the guided torpedo via a flying kite with a double bannger K  {-) {-)

PS2...our people also called the device a WIKKI bird   >>:-( %)

PS3...here is a snap of a real OZ .......IKKI bird launcher + bird on the guide arm......

No HS93...to the contrary....the coding of the Ikara missile as you have displayed....AS-GM-IK XXXXXX...in the Perth museum is certainly valid...but naturally a dummy...ie., real in every sence ...minus the explosive charge & electronics  :police:

Again... I had never worked on any Ikara weapons systems on our HMA vessels..... & only noted the livery of BLUE & GREY...........I trust the following WEB listing will clarify this point....Derek

An old RN friend told me that the only way an IKARA could sink a sub was if it was rolled off the deck above a stationary sub. :-))
