Wind Tunnel Tests were carried out to determine the Longitudinal. static stability and roll control characteristics of a 1/12 scale 'PRITHVI' missile configuration with cruciform trapezoidal wings and aft tail fin controls . The tests were conducted ih the 1 .2m Trisonic wind tunnel at Mach numbers from 0 .4 to 1 .5 through an angle of attack range of -10° to 20° . Model roll orientation was varied from -45° to 45 ° . The results indicated good longitudinal stability characteristics throughout the test Mach number range .
