08 December 2011

It is meant to neutralise a large geographical area with a rapid salvo of rockets. With a strike range of 40 km, the 'Pinaka' system can fire a salvo of 12 rockets in 44 seconds. 

One salvo each of 12 rockets from a battery of six launchers could neutralise a target area of 3.9 sq km at a time.

Its quick reaction time, accuracy and high rate of fire gives an edge to the armed forces during low-intensity, warlike situations, sources said.  The system's capability to incorporate several types of warheads makes it deadly for the enemy as it could destroy solid structures and bunkers, they added.
