New Delhi. The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Indian Army on Tuesday successfully test-fired an indigenously built tank destroyer missile at the KK range in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra. This information was given by the Ministry of Defense. The Ministry’s statement said that the Tank Destroyer Guided Missile (ATGM) was successfully test-fired from the Arjun battle tank. Many months of hard work is involved behind this success. The scientists of the Army and DRDO had worked very hard for this test.
“In the test, the ATGM struck the target with utmost accuracy and destroyed it,” it said. The telemetry system recorded the satisfactory flight performance of the missile. The successful trial of the indigenously developed Laser Guided ATGM is a major achievement. Scientists were doing research about this for several months, while the army was helping them.
