PHOTOS: Indian Army Rocket Artillery Systems At Sudarshan Shakti
The indigenously-developed Pinaka and Russian 9K58 SMERCH multibarrel rocket launcher systems from Indian Army rocket regiments were part of theater offensive maneouvers at Exercise Sudarshan Shakti in the Thar Desert over the last few weeks. The Indian Army, I am happy to report, is dead pleased with the Pinaka: with three regiments operational and two more in the pipeline, things are looking good. UPDATE: The Pinaka, incidentally, was put through some demo firings in Orissa earlier this week.
