A hybrid Pinaka dual multiple rocket launcher was showcased at the Indian Army
The hybrid Pinaka dual multiple rocket launcher system can carry six 122 millimeters rocket that has a maximum range of 40 kilometers and six 214 millimeters caliber rockets like Guided Pinaka that has a range of 75 kilometers.
Finally, proof of 122mm rocket integration with Pinaka launcher. 6x122mm pod in pic is possibly an ad hoc solution for @artrac_ia training alone. A field optimized pod could be able able pack up to 3x times more rockets. That would make Pinaka more modular like other MLRS, thus+ pic.twitter.com/EOMhc0iUX5

The Dual rocket system will reduce the need for having a dedicated 122 millimeters caliber Pinaka rocket launcher and also reduce training for the crew that can operate both rocket calibers at the same time from a single launching system.
