We are getting closer and closer to ship launched TBMs of the fateh family. This will be a key strategic asset for power projection.
No,its way too small for a cold launch gas generator,not to mention that its in the wrong place,you would expect it to be right on the bottom end of the canister,not on the side of it.In addition the canister has no external reinforcing rings,which you would usually expect for cold launch,plus the end of the canister has a bolted plate over it,this is something you would usually see on a hot launch system,this cover is designed to blow out under pressure just after the motor fires inside the canister.i need my brothers expert help,is this tube related to the cold boost mechanism or it is something else!
Your observation is correct. They are for the fath missile which is much smaller version of fateh 110. There i a picture of it with other versions of fateh where you can clearly see the size difference. I haven’t seen an official spec of it just yet.These canisters look too small to house even the Fateh-110 missiles.
I think you`re spot on there..Personally I’m inclined to think the 3x2 launcher houses the fath missile.
compare the biggest fajr (5) rocket in this pick with the new launcher.

You can see that 4 fajr launch tubes in one row with a lot of space to spare. Hence increasing the likelihood that the new launcher belongs to the fath missile, with only 3 (larger) tubes in each row, as officially stated.
for reference, the smaller fath missile marked red in this pic:
