    will the 120km range come under mark 2 or mark 3?

    the latest 3 pinaka firing was under mark 2 right.

    Never said anything about 20% weight reduction. I don't know where you got that from.

    That will be a insane claim to make.

    All I know is about 100 kg or so weight reduction which hal claimed before pre production and from a friend who claimed possible additional 100-200 kg reduction during production stage via replacement of metallic parts like screws bolts etc etc, with push and pull type appendages and inclusion of lightweight electrical harnesses etc etc .

    Yes and this push and pull type appendages is also being implemented in LCA mk1a for ease of access , better maintenance and weight reduction.

    Must’ve misunderstood you then.


    Anyway future has never been clearer. Future is indigenous maal, imports are enjoying their last hoora, media doesn’t seem to have caught on yet.

    Recently tested Guided Pinaka hit targets with an accuracy of 33m, 23,3m & 25.5m (still decent)!!!

    The initial euphoria of 2m or 5m accuracy is short lived. As I tried to explain to several folks earlier that just 1 or 2 tests is not sufficient to establish CEP of a rocket!!!

    Anyone privy to what warheads are available (or have been tested to date) for the Guided Pinaka?
    My understanding, based on the below and similar, is that there have been no sub-munition or mine warheads tested on the Mk II to date.
    Thanks

    It's accuracy can only be increased by further tests.
