Mer info:

The FV1620 Humber Hornet was a British light armoured vehicle designed in the 1950s for airborne operations. It was based on the chassis of the Humber FV1600 series, but fitted with a Malkara anti-tank guided missile launcher and a small turret with a 7.62 mm machine gun. The Hornet had a crew of three: a driver, a commander and a missile operator. The vehicle was air-portable by a Blackburn Beverley transport aircraft or a heavy-lift helicopter. The Hornet entered service with the British Army in 1958 and was used by the 16th Parachute Brigade until 1967, when it was replaced by the Ferret Mk 5 Swingfire. The Hornet saw combat during the Suez Crisis in 1956 and the Indonesian Confrontation in 1962-1966. It was also exported to Australia and Jordan.
