NEW DELHI, May 29 — India Thursday successfully test fired its home-made Pinaka rockets from a military base off the coast of the eastern state of Odisha, sources said.
"The rockets were test fired thrice from the military base at Chandipur in the state's Balasore district. All the three test- firing were successful," the sources said.
The rockets are capable of destroying enemy positions at 40 kms range with rapid salvos, the sources said, adding they can even destroy concrete structures and bunkers.
The rockets had earlier undergone several tough tests since 1995 and have been already inducted into the armed forces. (PNA/Xinhua)
