Issue 4 - 2022

Indigenously developed Laser-Guided Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) were successfully test-fired from Main Battle Tank Arjun by DRDO and Indian Army with support of Armoured Corps Centre & School on August 4, 2022. The missiles hit with precision and successfully destroyed the targets at two different ranges. The all-indigenous Laser Guided ATGM employs a tandem High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) warhead to defeat Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA) protected armoured vehicles. The ATGM has been developed with multi-platform launch capability and is currently undergoing technical evaluation trials from 120 mm rifled gun of MBT Arjun. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh complimented DRDO and Indian Army for successful performance of the Laser Guided ATGMs.
