Re: Artillery Corps: News & Discussion

Although Pinaka achieved range of smerch, it's still 214 mm. The smerch is 300 and the rocket weighs 800 kg, therefore having a bigger effect. We need to come up with our own 300 mm. Read sometime back, the smerch can flatten 67 hectares. That's a huge area. https://www.army-technology.com/projects/...
