India tests indigenous multi-barrel rocket launcher

Bhubaneswar : India Thursday successfully tested indigenously-built multi-barrel rocket launcher ''Pinaka'' from a defence base in Odisha, an official said.

The multi-barrel rocket launching system (MBRLS) was tested from the Proof and Experimental Establishment (PXE) in Chandipur-on-sea in Balasore district, around 230 km from state capital Bhubaneswar.

Capable of firing 12 rockets in a single salvo with 1.2 tonnes of high explosives within 40 seconds, the Pinaka system has already been inducted into the armed forces and was used in the field during the 1999 Kargil war.

"It was a routine evaluation test. Three rounds of rockets were launched successfully," director of the test range M.V.K.V. Prasad told IANS.
