Sourced from the Department of Defense, the Department of Defense in cooperation with PIDAD Indonesia will conduct trials of artillery rockets.
The number of rockets that will be fired is as much as 10 units. Range rockets that were tested ranging from 10 km to 30 km.
Several rocket warheads filled while others are not filled in charge.
Apparently this rocket test was a continuation of previous trials conducted in East Java Lumajang. As it is known at the time of the previous trials were two farmers become victims of the rocket that came out of its path. One victim was forced to amputate his leg.
Learning from that experience, most likely the trial will be conducted in an area in sumatra, this is done to avoid the casualties that might have fallen due to hit the rocket.
If the trial is successful in all likelihood, the rocket that will be used as MLRS rockets that may be developed by Indonesia.
As it is known today Indonesia operates NDL50, a mini-MLRS rocket with a range of up to 7 km.
