Successful test of indigenous anti-tank missile in Pokhran


DRDO successfully test-fired the Swadeshi Man-Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) at the Pokhran Field Firing Range in Rajasthan.  This missile can defy enemy tanks and armored vehicles.
In the future, it will also be deployed in the main battle tank Arjuna.  In the Pokhran test, the MPATGM hit the target with perfect accuracy.  This indigenous anti-tank missile is equipped with a tandem high explosive anti-tank (HEAT) weapon, which can pierce armored vehicles with state-of-the-art explosive reactive armor (ERA) armour.  In other words, no modern tank or armored vehicle can escape it.
