Well, everyone has to start somewhere.

I think the major concern is, whether they primarily want to use their LV to deliver weapons (and depending on what kind of target accuracy they want), or as primarily a development vehicle for non-weapon purposes. (A comm-sat/spy-sat would still be military-concerned (and not demanding official reprisals), but a blatant weapons system - primarily weapons-system/warhead- LV would definitely be worrying.)

Since when do orbital test include parachutes. Something fishy with the spin.

Maybe suborbital test that came short on altitude? Reentry vehicle test for a warhead? Something they wantedback after a balistic flight?
If you're happy and you know it,
It's your med's!
