The Lynx is a single-stage, unguided, fin stabilized rocket system which utilizes Lynx Mk.104 rocket motor for the propulsion. The Lynx Mk.104 motor, a surplus dual-thrust motor from the Standard SM-2MR Block II (RIM-66G-L) missile, has four modified Orion fins on the aft end arranged in a cruciform configuration to provide stability.

The Lynx is 35.6 cm in diameter and 2.794 m long. The Lynx fins are normally canted to provide for four revolutions per second spin rate at burnout.

The Lynx rocket is used as a target missile to simulare short range missiles.

The Lynx is also used as with a Terrier booster as Terrier Lynx.
