Pinaka Mark II Missile Test: Success


  • Pinaka Mark-II missile, launched with a multi barrier rocket launcher, was successfully test-fired today from Army’s Chandan firing range near Pokhran, after getting a software upgrade.
  • The target was situated in Keru, distanced at 55km from the source.
  • The area weapon has been developed by the DRDO for destroying/neutralising enemy troop concentration areas, communication centres, air terminal complexes, gun/rocket locations and for laying mines.
  • As of now, Pinaka Mark II can fire a salvo of 12 rockets in 44 seconds from the launcher. The missile is still under further development and is soon expected to be on the field.


  • High operational mobility, flexibility and accuracy are the major characteristics which give the weapon an edge in the modern artillery warfare for the Indian armed forces.
