India’s Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) has unveiled its new third generation anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) named “Amogha-3” at DefExpo-2020 exhibition in Lucknow city, Uttar Pradesh state, today.
“AMOGHA-III, the third generation Anti-Tank Guided Missile, designed and developed by BDL, with support of DRDO, was launched today at Defexpo 2020 and first model was handed over to Hon’ble Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singhji,” said Siddharth Mishra, Chairman and Managing Director of BDL.
According to the Indian media, the Amogha-3 is developed from BDL’s older Amogha-1 (2.8km range, wire-guided technology) and Amogha-2 (wireless ATGM with RF guidance) missiles. The third generation missile will reportedly be equipped with an active imaging infra-red seeker to supplement a Man Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) system built by state-run DRDO.
