India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has announced a critical milestone: the 120mm Cannon Launched Missile Development Programme (CLMDP) known as SAMHO has successfully completed all trials and is now ready for production. This marks a significant advancement in India’s anti-tank warfare capabilities.

Designed for deployment on the Arjun Main Battle Tank, SAMHO packs a powerful punch against modern and future armored threats. Its semi-active laser homing guidance system allows for precise targeting of enemy main battle tanks protected by explosive reactive armor, hardened point targets, and even low-flying helicopters.

Flexibility and Precision:

SAMHO boasts impressive versatility with two distinct firing modes:

  • Top Attack Lifted Trajectory: Perfect for engaging heavily armored targets from above, offering enhanced protection against countermeasures. This mode provides a range of 2-5 kilometers.
  • Direct (Flat Trajectory): Ideal for situations requiring rapid engagement or targeting at closer distances. This mode offers a range of 1.5-2 kilometers.

SAMHO’s flexibility extends to its guidance system. It can receive laser targeting information from either the co-mounted laser designator on the Arjun tank or from a separate third-party designator, maximizing operational possibilities.

The successful development and production of SAMHO represent a major leap forward in India’s quest for self-reliance in critical defense technologies. Its potent capabilities enhance the offensive and defensive firepower of the Arjun tank, providing a formidable advantage on the battlefield. Additionally, the versatility of the platform suggests potential integration with other armored vehicles in the future, further bolstering India’s ground forces.
