NSM name[edit]

The English name for the next generation anti-ship missile from KDA is Naval Strike Missile. Take my word for it. IMO that name should therefore be used as the article name here in the English wikipedia. --Wernher 11:34, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)

First "NSM"[edit]

Indeed The Penguin is the FIRST naval strike missile. http://www.kongsberg.com/eng/kda/products/Missiles/ --Anonymous

Combat[edit]

Has it ever been used in combat? --Anonymous

Nope, not been fired in anger AFAIK. --Wernher 21:13, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Operators[edit]

I wouldnt be so sure about these, especially South Africa being listed, there is that photo of SAAF Mirage F1's with the missile, with caption claiming that it is Penguin, yet to me that actually looks like Israeli Python 3 missile, or its South African version whatever it was called. 91.156.204.243 (talk) 18:28, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

article name[edit]

Any reason why we cant rename the article with the US Designation, i.e. AGM-119 Penguin? 87.194.223.183 (talk) 23:11, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Because it is a Norwegian missile, and USA is not the main user of it. 81.225.216.21 (talk) 20:30, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Given that shouldn't the page title be "Kongsberg Penguin" to bring it into conformity with both industry conventions and those used for other Wikipedia pages on weapons systems? Lexington50 (talk) 03:47, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:52, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
