Serbia is developing a 128 mm guided rocket intended for the air-to-surface role. A prototype seeker was displayed at the DSEI 2013 exhibition held in London from 9-13 September. The weapon is based on the existing 128 mm M-74 (HE) or M-80 (HEAT) Munja (meaning lightning) unguided rocket and will be fired from the four-tube L-128 launcher originally developed for this weapon.

The definitive seeker is intended to combine television (TV) and semi-active laser (SAL) guidance and is based on an upgraded seeker developed by Serbia for use on the country's own SAVA variant of the 9K35 Strela-10 (SA-13 'Gopher') surface-to-air missile (SAM).
