New engine testing campaign announced in Twitter, starting in June.

Talking about a 30% power increase, to be tested initially for >1 min duration static fire.

Meanwhile, final review of Arion-1 is about to start, with static fires by the end of this year.

They look quite shorter than that: I'd say 80-100 cm long at most.
