India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has provided details of its man-portable anti-tank guided missile (MPATGM) during the 20–24 February Aero India 2019 exhibition in Bangalore.

“The missile is in development and guided flight tests are scheduled by mid-2019,” a Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL) official told Jane’s . Two test-firings were conducted in September last year.

The MPATGM is described by DRDL, which is the nodal agency for the development, as a “third-generation” anti-tank missile, measuring 1,300 mm in length and 120 mm in diameter, with a weight of 14.5 kg. The command launch unit (CLU) weighs 14.25 kg.
