New Delhi, 14th April. 
The Defense Research & Development Organization (DRDO) has designed and developed the Man Portable Anti-tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) Weapon System domestically. The system has undergone many field evaluations in various flight configurations with the aim of demonstrating its high level of superiority. The MPATGM, Launcher, Target Acquisition System, and Fire Control Unit made up the system.

A sufficient amount of missile shooting experiments has been carried out with success in order to comply with the entire operational envelope as required by the General Staff Qualitative Requirements (Infantry, Indian Army). On April 13, 2024, the Warhead Flight Trials were carried out at the Pokhran Field Firing Range in Rajasthan with great success. It was discovered that the missile and warhead performances were outstanding.
The MPATGM Tandem Warhead System has successfully completed penetration trials and has proven to be capable of defeating current armour-protected Main Battle Tanks. The ATGM system has top assault capabilities and is well-equipped for day and night operations. The inclusion of dual mode seeker functionality to the missile arsenal for tank warfare is highly valuable. Now that the system has successfully completed its development and demonstration, it is prepared for the final user evaluation trials that will precede its acceptance into the Indian Army.

Mantri Raksha The successful system trials have been praised by Shri Rajnath Singh, who also described them as a significant step towards the development of modern technology-based defense systems and expressed gratitude to the Indian Army and the DRDO for their efforts.
