Tuesday, June 30th, 2020

An advanced version of the indigenously developed Pinaka Mark-II rocket was successfully test-fired from Army’s Chandan firing range near Pokhran using a multi-barrel launcher. Pinaka-I has already been inducted into the Army and was also put into field testing for assessing its capability during the Kargil war. Its quick reaction time and high rate of fire gives an edge to the Army during low-intensity warlike situation. The system is capable to incorporate several types of warheads. Pinaka Mark-II rocket with a range of more than 60-km is capable of acting as a force-multiplier and was developed to supplement artillery guns.
