The new laser guided ATGM was fired from an Arjun MBT at the Indian Army’s KK Ranges, at the Armoured Corps Centre and School (ACC&S) Ahmednagar.

The DRDO statement claims that ATGM successfully defeated a target located at a range of 3 km.

The new Indian ATGM employs a tandem HEAT warhead to defeat Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA) protected armoured vehicles. It has been developed with multiple-platform launch capability and is currently undergoing technical evaluation trials from gun of MBT Arjun.

Laser guided ATGMs lock and track the targets with the help of laser designation to ensure precision hit accuracy.
