Something to do with Malkara perhaps? If the initials of the manufacturer are C.A.F., which it looks like, then Commonwealth Aircraft Factory, in Australia were involved with Malkara, were they not?

 

Of course, I may well be wrong and well off track :-D

Ah well my mistake was to post it at the weekend, should have done it on a weekday when you're not around (That is a compliment actually :-D)

 

Yes it is to do with Malkara. Close but it is actually GAF, Government Aircraft Factories

 

So what is it & what has it got to do with the Malkara project?

Now I know why you are launching these Mystery Objects in the middle of the day now :-D

 

Reason I thought it was CAF, was because they built their version of the P51 Mustang in the late Forties, must have had a name change to Govt.

 

As to what is it for and why is it Cockpit Green, well it would only be a guess....................and I honestly cannot think of anything at present.

it is not a tail fin from a Malkara that failed to release from the launcher on firing, is it?

 

We had a REME officer who was attached to Mlakara unit and he related to me once how he saw this happen.

did the remains end up in an unusual location?

 

 

Nope

 

So far we've had suggestions of:

fuselage

warhead

container

main body

tail fin

nose

fin

engine

 

But what else is there left?

Wing?

 

 

Yes, well done.

The fins are small & fixed & at the rear. The wings are in the middle & their movement provides the means of steering. There are 4 fins & 4 wings. 2 of the wings are special & this is one of those but it has a problem. A solution to this was in fact an earlier mystery object!
