Pinaka rocket system successfully test fired

The Defence Research and Defence Organisation (DRDO) on Monday successfully test fired the guided Pinaka from Pokhran ranges.

The weapon system is equipped with state-of-the-art guidance kit comprising an advanced navigation and control system.

“In both the missions, the weapon systems impacted the intended targets with high precision and achieved desired accuracies. Telemetry systems tracked and monitored the vehicle all through the flight path. All the mission objectives have been met,” the defence ministry statement said.

The indigenously developed Pinaka will boost the capability of the artillery to make precision hits, the statement added.
