Information remain rather scarce about the origins of the Penguin missile, adopted by US Navy as AGM-119. It was developped by Kongsberg and FFI, but little known about the early concepts.
The same is true about its derivatives. Jane's mentions a coastal launcher prototype.

A nicely posed picture. No way would you allow a rocket exhaust to be fired directly over a Barracuda Cam Net like that. They catch fire far too easily!
