This report covers water tunnel tests of a 2.36" rocket projectile with several variations in profile of nose and with two types of tail; a folding fin tail and a fixed shroud ring tail. The hydrodynamic forces, drag, cross wind force, and moment acting on the projectile, were measured and the locations of the center-of- pressure were calculated for the various combinations of noses and tails and at various velocities and yaw angles.
