184.108.40.206 Ballistic Test (see 3.4) .-A sample consisting of
twenty-four (24) complete rounds (as fielded) shall be randomly
selected from each lot and ballistically tested at a proving
ground prescribed by the contracting officer. The test shall
be performed as specified in 4.5.5 using equipment in accordance

18.104.22.168.1 Primary Round Malfunction. -The twenty-four
(24) ballistic test specimen shall be monitored for the
a. Parts Security or Premature Warhead Functioning.-
(See 3.4.2, 3.4.3, 3.4.8, 3.4.9, 3.4.12).
Short Range. (See 3.4.7).
Motor Blow (See 3.4.13).
If one or more defective are found, the lot represented by
the sample shall be rejected.
22.214.171.124.2 Secondary Round Malfunctions.-The twenty-four
(24) ballistic test specimens shall be monitored for the follow-
Excessive time of first motion (See 3.4.4).
Excessive lateral deflection (See 3.4.5).
Failure to meet motor velocity/time parameters
Unacceptable warhead function (See 3.4.8, 3.4.9,
3.4.10, 3.4.11, or 3.4.12).
e. Erratic behavior (See 3.4.1).
If two or more defective are found, the lot represented by
the sample shall be rejected. If there is only one defective,
the lot represented by the sample shall be placed in a re-
ferred status and a retest shall be conducted. The retest
