The Pakistan Army’s (PA’s) artillery corps has inducted a locally developed rocket for use with its multiple rocket launchers (MRLs).

“With [a range of] over 100 km the rocket is a highly effective and potent [weapon] for interdiction that can effectively disrupt enemy’s mobilisation and assembly,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the Pakistani military, announced in a 4 January statement.

Pakistan’s chief of army staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, was quoted in the statement as saying that the new “A-100 Rocket” shall “augment the existing conventional fire-power capabilities of [the] Pakistan Army”. He also emphasised the army’s resolve to “strengthen conventional forces to meet challenges of full spectrum threat”.
