The AR3 comes with 300mm or 370mm rockets, able to carry 10 or 8 respectively (or a mix of 5 and 4).
In turn, the 370mm rocket comes with FD220 and FD280 variants, offering 220km and 280km respectively

It doesn't matter. All radio waves can be jammed. INS accumulates drift error leading to inaccuracy.

after 50km, this multi barrel rocket system goes inaccurate. These are good for propaganda.
Well how do we know it becomes inaccurate? Aren't unguided rocket projectiles inaccurate anyway. At a particular angle, they are expected to travel particular distances. Isn't that same for Indian smerch and pinaka?

Iraq jammed GPS a decade ago. India is a lot more advanced than Iraq from a decade ago in jamming techniques. All radio waves can be jammed if you have the right equipment, and India has advanced ELINT and AESA based jammers, both in air and on the ground. So Chinese radars and GPS, etc. will be jammed. No worries.
Without GPS level guidance, it becomes inaccurate at any distance beyond short ranges.

I have provided a simple explanation of why unguided rocket or self powered projectiles are inaccurate Compare to Artillery guns.

If you want to go into details then there are factors like exhaust bell vibrations due to oscillations in supersonic exhaust gases Which further changes centre of trust and as rockets are longer centre of trust is further from centre of mass so any minute shift in centre of trust produces TORQUE around centre of mass which causes rocket to yaw up or down or pitch sideways.

As rocket fuel burns temperature of rocket surface increases which Expend rocket motor casing With changes aerodynamic forces Centre And as I have stated above rockets are longer so any changes in aerodynamic forces produces significant torque( torque=forcexdistance ) which causes yaw and pitch.

Then there are random minute changes in trust of solid motors

Artillery shell don't have GPS. Most of the time they are unguided. Just like our pinaka regards rockets. So how will jamming have an effect on unguided rockets? Even most of PLAs arsenal are unguided rockets.

If they are inaccurate then so is our Pinakas. So both India China and countless countries using Smerch systems have it for fun?

The rockets are allowed to have high CEP. It's going to be fired in a salvo in a particular location anyway. And it can do the job.

The point is that India can jam Chinese rocket guidance, thereby rendering them inaccurate beyond short ranges. Both sides have plenty of artillery, with India also having long range guided artillery as well as long range guided rockets.
