Army to rope in pvt sector for making Pinaka rockets


The Army plans to rope in private sector for making Pinaka rockets — the latest weapon system of the artillery. Based on Russian Smerch rockets, currently made by the ordnance factories, the Pinaka has a range of over 40km and can be fired-mounted on a vehicle. Bids have also been invited from private parties so as to increase the supplies to the Army, sources said.

The request for proposal (RFP) for the 214mm Pinaka rockets were issued around a fortnight ago. Sources said the successful bidder will have to supply over 1,000 rockets in a year and the contract will be spread over a period of 10 years.

With RFPs issued for Pinaka rockets, the Army is now planning to get eight types of ammunition in all from the private sector. Read More
