    Neh, the 55km being mentioned here is of Mk. II, the whole para says about difference between Mk. I and Mk. II, by extended he was talking of Mk. II. And anyways, Mk. I demonstrated 40km range and Mk. II demonstrated 65km range coverage.

    A nob question

    How these MLRS are reloaded, how long it takes to ready the next salvo, and what kind of support vehicles are used for the same purpose.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Pinaka uses the loader cum replenishment vehicle with a hydraulic crane for quicker reloads.

    So every Launcher Vehicle gets to fire thrice in one outing.

    6 LV firing once from the on-board rockets.
    Once again from the associated 6 Launcher Cum Replenishment vehicle.
    Once again from the associated 3 Replenishment Vehicle carrying twice the load that the LCR carries.

    Mogambo khush hua :)

    Pinaka Mark-III will replace Russian SMERCH Multi-Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL): A Report
    Published October 9, 2017 SOURCE: RAUNAK KUNDE / NEWS BEAT / IDRW.ORG DRDO

    [​IMG]

    Scientist Dr. S Guruprasad while speaking at DEFTECH2017 organized by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has listed development of Next Generation Pinaka Mark-III heavy Rocket Launcher as one of the futuristic projects initiated by DRDO. Mark-III variant will have a range of 120kms and can carry 250kg payload which is likely to make its debut by 2020. Next Generation Pinaka will be replacing Russian Supplied SMERCH Multi-Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) which has a range of 90kms. India earlier this year equipped Pinaka Mark-II with a navigation, guidance and control kit and has been transformed to a Guided Pinaka. Mark-II successfully has Hit targets from 70-75kms successfully and will soon enter production. Mark-I which has a maximum range of 42kms already has been inducted into Indian Army and by 2026 Indian Army will have 22 Pinaka regiments. Indian Army has 62 SMERCH batteries in its inventory and needs for the development of Pinaka Mark-III was felt when Russia refused to give India local license production due to fears that Transfer of Technology will enable India to fast-track its own local heavy multiple rocket launcher programs. Chinese copies of BM-30 Smerch have already entered service with Chinese People’s Liberation Army and export variant of Chinese copies was also been supplied to Pakistan Army.

    That was just as an expression of intent, let me make it abundantly clear we are not looking at putting nuclear warheads on the PINAKA, doing so would put our entire nuclear safety paradigm at risk.
