The Indian Army and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) are reportedly collaborating on a fast-track mission to develop new long-range rockets. These rockets, with ranges of 120 kilometres (74 miles) and 300 kilometres (186 miles), could see developmental trials as early as 2025.

This initiative prioritizes speed, with both programs categorized as “fast-track mission mode.” This urgency suggests a potential need to address emerging strategic requirements.

The Indian Army has reportedly requested a multi-calibre launcher capable of firing a variety of rockets. This launcher, if realized, would offer significant flexibility, allowing the deployment of rockets ranging from 122mm to 300mm in calibre.

The DRDO’s experience with the Pinaka Multi-Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) system is likely to prove valuable. The Pinaka Dual Rocket system, which combines 122mm and 214mm launchers, demonstrates the DRDO’s capability in developing such multi-calibre solutions.

While specifics are subject to change, initial reports suggest the 120km rocket will utilize a 300mm calibre, while the 300km variant will employ a 370mm calibre. These larger calibres are likely chosen to accommodate the greater range and potential payload capacity of these rockets.

With the project in its initial stages, design and development are ongoing. The possibility of calibre adjustments remains on the table. The coming years will be crucial as the DRDO translates these plans into concrete prototypes and conducts developmental trials.
