    Advanced version of indigenously developed Pinaka Mark-2 rocket successfully test fired from a defence base in Odisha: PTI

    [​IMG]

    BALASORE (ODISHA): An advanced version of the indigenously developed Pinaka Mark-II rocket was successfully test fired today from a defence base in Odisha using a multi- barrel launcher.

    The tests were conducted from the Proof & Experimental Establishment (PXE) at Chandipur firing range No.2, about 15-km from here, defence sources said.

    "Four rounds of extended range, Mark-2 version of Pinaka rockets with more than 60-km range were successfully tested today," PXE director, R Appavu Raj, told PTI, adding that "some more rounds of test will be conducted in the next four days".

    The sources said that the Pune-based Armament Research and Development Establishment ( ARDE) of DRDO conducted the tests with logistical support from the PXE labs.

    Pinaka, the unguided rocket system meant to neutralise large areas with rapid salvos, has undergone several tough tests since 1995. It has been inducted into the army and
    the present trials were conducted with some improvements.

    The advanced version Mark-II rocket with a range of more than 60-km and capable of acting as a force-multiplier, was developed to supplement artillery guns, the sources said.

    The quick reaction time and high rate of fire of the system would give the army an edge in low-intensity conflict situations, they said.

    With a battery of six launchers, the Pinaka system can fire a salvo of 12 rockets in 44 seconds and can neutralise a target area of 3.9 sq.km. The system's capability for incorporating several types of warheads makes it deadly for the enemy as it can destroy solid structures and bunkers

    65 KM.

    We must move to that proposed system of 120 KM with 250 KG warhead with this honeywell chip. Our unguided rockets will become the precise missile with the application of this cheap.

    Yeah about that...........,you see friend,this Honeywell TALIN 2000 (or Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator) is not a guidance chip for bombs or MBRL rounds,it's actually an inertial land navigation system based around a RLG device,just like the Sigma 90 series used by Indian Armed Forces on various of their platforms.These decvices are fitted to weapon platforms,not the munitions themselves,so there is no question of these systems,turning our unguided rockets/arty shells into precise missiles.It's true that these systems can provide you with a very precise firing solution,there by increasing your chances of hitting your target with more precision but that's about it.They can not guide the munitions theselves towards the objectives.
    The reporter fucked up again.

    The Pinaka Mk II has a range of 65 km, compared to 40 of Mk I, which had an error probability of one meter with the help of GPS.:o:

    Could be, but TALIN 2000 is not a GPS device.

    Where does the article say anything about either Smerch or Honeywell?

    BTW the IA already has 90 km range smerch MBRLs, and they will be used for a long time, with locally produced ammo. Pinaka is a completely Indian MBRL meant to replace the older grad systems.

    Neither Smerch nor Honeywell have anything to do with it.
