India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has successfully completed a crucial stage in the development of the Man-Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) weapon system. The system is now ready for Final User Evaluation trials by the Indian Army.

The MPATGM system is equipped for deployment in various conditions, boasting both day and night operation capabilities. Additionally, the missile features top-attack technology, allowing it to strike armored vehicles from above, a critical advantage against heavily armored targets. MPATGM are to be equipped with the Indian Army’s infantry and Parachute Regiment (Special Forces).

With the successful completion of these developmental trials, the MPATGM will now proceed to the Final User Evaluation stage. This stage will involve the Indian Army putting the system through its paces in real-world scenarios to assess its effectiveness and suitability for deployment.

The MPATGM is a completely Indian-made weapon system, designed and developed by DRDO. The system comprises four main elements:

  • The MPATGM missile itself
  • A launcher unit
  • A target acquisition system
  • A fire control unit
