H-5 X "KNORRLI"

 

This H-5 had the shell painted matt black, with the rear side sporting a painted “Knorrli”, the popular mascot of a well-known food and beverage producer.

 

Instead of the usual soup ladle, Knorrli holds an unguided Oerlikon 8 cm (8 cm Flz Rak Oe) rocket.

 

Those rockets, used on De Havilland DH-112 Venom and Hawker Hunter Mk.58, were available in two versions, fitted with anti-tank hollow charge or fragmentation warhead.
