In 1963 the US offered Denmark, like other NATO countries, 4 Homing All the Way Killer (HAWK) missile batteries addition to the already existing 4 NIKE missile batteries.
The Basic HAWK system was designed to neutralize incoming threats at low-level and worked in conjunction with the Nike (high altitude) system.
THe HAWK batteries were also stationed around Copenhagen protecting the area against low altitude air strikes.
In 1965 HAWK Squadron 543- composed of 2 launcher sections, a radar section and a command section - was mounted on Stevns Fort at the Hoejerup lighthouse.
