India’s indigenously developed Man Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) was successfully flight tested for the second time from the Ahmednagar range over the weekend.

It was the second MPATGM test, the DRDO said, adding that the first was tested on Saturday.

"The two flight-tests were for different ranges, including maximum range capability," a Defence Ministry statement said. "All the mission objectives have been met."

The MPATGM is a third-generation anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), which has been under development by DRDO in partnership with Indian defense contractor VEM Technologies Ltd. since 2015.  Fitted with a high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead, the MPATGM reportedly boasts a top attack capability and has a maximum engagement range of about 2.5 kilometers.
