Man Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) – UPSC Prelims

Man Portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile (MPATGM):
  • MPATGM is an indigenously developed low weight Anti-Tank guided fire & forget missile.
  • An anti-tank missile is a missile that is created to destroy vehicles that are heavily armoured.
  • Range: 4,000 metres.
  • The missile was launched from a man portable launcher. It is also integrated with a thermal sight that allows it to be used in low-visibility conditions, even in complete darkness.
  • The missile has a miniaturized infrared imaging seeker and advanced avionics for on-board control and guidance.
  • The MPATGM will now be built in India, eliminating the need to import large numbers of Spike ATGMs from Israel or Javelin ATGMs from the US, which was the earlier plan.
