Nagpur-based private firm Economic Explosives Ltd (EEL) has offered to develop a Tactical Surface-to-Surface Missile with a range of 250km for which talks are underway with the Indian Army. Tactical missiles are usually used as rapid-response missiles to enable counterbattery fire against artillery, multiple rocket launch systems (MRL), and short-range ballistic missiles and will be cheaper to produce and acquire.
EEL which is also in charge of the production of the Pinaka rockets has offered to develop a new variant of the Pinaka with a range of 150km with better guidance and with shoot-and-scoot capability which enhances crew and platform survivability in high-threat environments.
Both Proposals of the Tactical ballistic missiles and longer-range Pinaka rockets are still under consideration but looking at the long-range firepower that has been deployed by the Chinese military across the LAC, India will have to match the firepower to support its troops.
