Army likely to get indigenous MLRS

The Indian Army is all set to place an order to raise six new regiments of the indigenous Pinaka Multi-Launcher Rocket System (MLRS) — with a total of 108 launchers, however, the proposal is yet to be approved by the defence ministry. The worth of the deal is expected to be around Rs 1,950-crore. Being the primary manufacturers of the mobile artillery system Tata Power SED and Larsen & Toubro (L&T) will get a major share of the contract, along with state-run Bharat Earth Movers. The system is capable of flattening a 3.9 sq km area at a range of 40 km in less than a minute.
