Bolstering the firepower of the Indian defence ecosystem, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Army have successfully test-fired laser-guided Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) from Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun at KK Ranges with support of Armoured Corps Centre & School (ACC&S) Ahmednagar in Maharashtra.
The indigenously developed missiles hit with precision and successfully destroyed the targets at two different ranges. Further, telemetry systems recorded the satisfactory flight performance of the missiles.

Appreciating the efforts of DRDO and Indian Army for the successful trial of the Laser Guided ATGM, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said the development of this system is an important step towards realising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’.
Notably, India conducted the successful test of the Anti-Tank Guided Missiles in June this year from Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun at KK Ranges with support of Armoured Corps Centre & School (ACC&S).
It is noteworthy that the made-in-India Laser Guided missile hit the bull’s eye with textbook precision. The trial has established the ATGMs capability to engage targets from minimum to maximum ranges.
