BHUBANESWAR: India on Thursday efficiently test-fired laser-guided Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs) from Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun at KK Ranges close to Ahmednagar in Maharashtra.

Defence sources mentioned the indigenously developed laser-guided ATGMs have been efficiently flight examined by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Army with the help of Armoured Corps Centre and School (ACC&S), Ahmednagar.

The missiles hit with precision and efficiently destroyed the targets at each minimal and most ranges. Telemetry programs deployed for the mission have recorded the passable flight efficiency of the missiles.

The missile has been developed with multi-platform launch functionality by Pune-based Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) in affiliation with High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL) and Instruments Research and Development Establishment (IRDE), Dehradun.  

It is presently present process technical analysis trials from 120 mm rifled gun of MBT Arjun. The missile locks and tracks the targets with the assistance of laser designation to make sure precision hit accuracy.

The all-indigenous laser guided ATGMs make use of a tandem excessive explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead to defeat explosive reactive armour (ERA) protected armoured autos in ranges from 1.5 km to five km.

Secretary of Department of Defence R&D and chairman of DRDO Dr G Satheesh Reddy congratulated the groups related to the take a look at firing of laser guided ATGMs. He mentioned the consistency of ATGM’s functionality to have interaction targets from minimal to most vary has been established efficiently throughout the trials.

ATGMs are primarily designed to hit and destroy closely armored navy autos. The missiles may be transported by a single soldier, to bigger tripod-mounted weapons, which require a squad or group to move and fireplace, to car and plane mounted missile programs.

This sort of guided missiles depend on an electro-optical imager (IIR) seeker, a laser or a W-band radar seeker within the nostril of the missile. These are ‘fire-and-forget’ missiles the place the operator can retreat proper after firing as there isn’t a extra steering required.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has complimented DRDO and Indian Army for the profitable efficiency of the laser guided ATGMs.
