Russia to modernize Grad MLRS for Indian army

MOSCOW, January 23 (RIA Novosti) -- Russia's main arms exporter, Rosoboronexport, and the Indian Defense Ministry have signed a contract to deliver modernized rockets for the Grad multiple launch rocket systems deployed in the Indian army, a company official said Monday.

"These rockets will significantly improve the combat effectiveness of the Grad system," said Viktor Komardin, the deputy director-general of Rosoboronexport.

The Indian army has used the Grad MLRS since the 1970s, but the firing range of the rockets had been limited to 20 kilometers. The modernized rockets have an extended range of 40km and more powerful warheads.
