India carried out the third successful trial of Pinaka-guided missile at Pokhran on March 12. Two trials were conducted on March 11.
Pinaka is a multiple rocket launcher produced in India and developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) for the Indian Army.
“All the three trials met the mission objectives. The consecutive successful missions of guided Pinaka prove the efficacy, reliability and high precision capabilities of the weapon system,” the DRDO said in a statement.
The weapon system, mounted on a Tatra truck, is equipped with state-of-the-art guidance kit comprising an advanced navigation and control system.
On Monday, the weapon system impacted the intended targets with high precision and achieved desired accuracies in both the trials.
