Interesting...(I'd seen that vehicle before, on an ESA webpage I think, but the launch photograph wasn't quite close enough to show its forward section's faceted sides). Astra's Rocket 3.0 https://astra.com/ also has a faceted payload fairing (both it and the VS-40M / SHEFEX-II have such Zeppelin-like [having polygonal cross-section] forward sections).

Also:

I see that the rocket tested sharp-edged re-entry vehicle and control surface shapes (see: https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf...HapGCq8Q4dUDCA0 [Dr. Marc Murbach at NASA has also tested such sharp-edged, reinforced ceramic shapes on sounding rocket and Minuteman ICBM practice flights]). They will facilitate highly-maneuverable glide re-entry vehicles, aerograv-assist spacecraft for planetary missions, and hypersonic-cruise aircraft and missiles.
