By Staff Correspondent

The final deliverable configuration of the Man-Portable Anti Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) was flight tested successfully today. The indigenously developed anti-tank missile is low weight, fire and forget missile and is launched from a man-portable launcher integrated with a thermal site. The rocket impacted the designated target and destroyed it. The final impact event was captured on the camera, and the test successfully validated the minimum range.

The present test was to prove the consistent performance for the minimum range. All the mission objectives were met. The missile has a miniaturized Infrared Imaging Seeker and advanced avionics for onboard control and guidance. In earlier test trials, the missile performance has been proven for the maximum range.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has congratulated DRDO for the consistent performance of the anti-tank missile and said that this is an important step towards ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ in advanced technology-based defence system development. Secretary Department of Defence R&D and Chairman DRDO Dr G Satheesh Reddy congratulated the team for the excellent performance of the missile during the test.
