.....I was led to believe.......
I think you've been misled. A little Googling for Cobra and its updated variants would suggest that what you have there isn't what you think it might be. I'd go with Smudge67er.

I'd say no as I seem to remember that the Cobra wings /tail was made our of fibreglass or some kind of composite material, and that in the photo appears to be rusting and not the same shape

Thanks for your input Jim, we think there were four missile strikes, and are just trying to identify what they were,

The Argies also used their own Mathogo and the Bofors Bantam ATGW but they done't seem to have a tail like the thing in your photograph
just found this,
"Surprisingly it does not appear that any Mathogos were even deployed to the Falklands, let alone fired, during the 1982 war. The Argentine marine corps reportedly did have some of the older Bofors Bantam, and newer MBB Mamba, ATGMs on the islands."

the Mamba is just an upgrade of the MBB Cobra
