PT DAHANA (Persero), a state-owned company engaged in manufacture of the explosives industry, exhibited commercial and military products. One product that caught the visitors’ attention was the Prototype of the R-Han 122B Rocket Launching Vehicle Phase II-II TA 2019. This rocket launcher car had previously been tested Pameungpeuk region, Garut.
The R-Han 122B Rocket Launching Vehicle is a multiple rocket launcher (MRLS) vehicle proudly made by the nation’s own professionals. Using this tool, the rocket launch process can automatically be executed more quickly. The mechanism for rocket loading into the launcher is cleverly designed to achieve a shorter operating time.
The development of the R-Han 122B Rocket Launching Vehicle is to meet the need for launch vehicles that can function in a proper and stable way according to the expected specifications without any errors and damage both during endurance and shooting. Apart from that, it is expected that the automation and manual systems can be operated by the operator adjusted to the desired shooting procedures and operations. The prototype rocket launcher was made in order to meet the need for the R-Han 122B rocket launch vehicle as support in the National Rocket development program.
In addition to the Rocket Launching Vehicle, DAHANA also displayed other products such as Bomb P100 Live, Rhan 122B, and commercial explosive products such as shaped charge, Dabex, Danfo, and other products.
