Indigenous anti-tank missile test-fired

An indigenously developed Man Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) was successfully flight tested for the second time from Ahmednagar test range on Sunday.

It has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

“All the mission objectives have been met. The two missions on September 15 and 16 have been successfully flight tested for different ranges, including the maximum range capability,” the DRDO said in a statement.

This low-weight MPATGM will complement the Spike Anti-Tank Guided Missile to be procured from Israel.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman congratulated the DRDO team, the Army and associated industries on their success.
