Silkworm anti-ship missiles at Oceana NAS (Birds Eye)
"The Silkworm was developed at the Institute of Mechanics under Tsien Hsue-shen, a Chinese scientist who did his graduate studies at MIT and Caltech, before being deported by the United States in 1955 after being suspected of Communist ties."

...While it is not a particularly sophisticated missile when compared to newer generations of Anti-Ship missiles such as the French Exocet, the Silkworm's unusually large warhead ensures that a single hit will inflict very serious damage."
