The fire test of this 114 mm guided rocket aimed at checking the dynamic section in order to use the results report for the accurate calibration of the prototype rocket's inertial measurement equipment. This test was successful, with satisfactory control of the rocket's flight posture. It is considered as another milestone in research and development of the guided rocket.
