There were news like we are working on Advanced CVT fuze for pinaka mk 2 that would be having an range of 60kms but this time they have tested for 40kms.
We are in a need of indigenous CVT fuze that can create thrust to deliver warhead using an HMX-based composition for antitank bomblets and minelets, which gives respectively the penetration of 100 mm plus and 150 mm in armour over 60kms.
So where is the news?
