According to sources familiar with the matter, India is reportedly on the brink of securing a second export order for the Guided Pinaka Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher, developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), from an undisclosed country. The negotiations have been ongoing for some time now, and the contract is expected to be finalized in the upcoming months, following which an official announcement is likely to be made.
The DRDO-developed rocket launcher has already been exported to Armenia, and this potential deal marks another milestone in India’s efforts to bolster its defence exports.
Guided Pinaka is an advanced version of the Pinaka Mark-II rocket launcher and can accurately hit targets at longer ranges with increased precision. The Guided Pinaka has a range of up to 75 km and is equipped with an advanced guidance system that includes an inertial navigation system, GPS, and a flight control computer. It is capable of carrying a variety of warheads, including high-explosive, fragmentation, and incendiary. The Guided Pinaka was successfully test-fired in 2019 and has since been inducted into the Indian Army. It is also being offered for export to friendly countries.
