Collection Item Summary:
This is a model, possibly for wind tunnel tests, of Kingfisher A, a standoff weapon for release from a high altitude aircraft to attack a surface ship from beyond the range of the target’s air defenses. Range was nominally 20 miles; total weight about 3,000 pounds, including the payload, a Hark 21 acoustic homing torpedo.
C.L. Zakhartchenko donated this model to the Museum in 1970.
