Extended Range Version of Pinaka Rocket System Tested Successfully

The Mark-II version of Pinaka rocket system was successfully tested from a defence base off the Odisha coast. At least three rounds of the rocket were test fired from the Proof and Experimental Establishment (PXE) at Chandipur-on-sea. Defence sources said the tests were of an extended range version of the rocket. While the older version of the rocket has a range of 40 km, its extended version can destroy targets at a distance of nearly 65 km. All three rockets were fired from a multi-barrel rocket launcher (MBRL).
