 The HS-16 was shown for the first time at the exhibition in October 2021. This short missile, derived from the HS-12, has a simple WH with stabilizing fins.
 Due to  the roughly halved amount of fuel, the missile achieves a significantly higher velocity for climb, but has a shorter burning time and probably also a shorter
 range.
Note: The suspected former HS-16 is officially the HS-17.
