    Inidigenously developed MPATGM



  • DRDO started work on a man-portable version of the Nag missile in 2005.
  • On 20 December 2017, India cancelled a major deal for acquiring the Israeli Spike (ATGM) in favour of the DRDO MPATGM, after deciding that no transfer of technology was needed for the development of MPATGM.
  • However, India reauthorized the deal in January 2018 during a visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to India.
  • This deal was cancelled again in June 2019 after DRDO promised to deliver the MPATGM by 2021.


  • On September 15, 2018, DRDO carried out the first trial of the MPATGM successfully. This trial was followed by another successful trial of the MPATGM on September 16, 2018. 
  • On March 13, 2019 DRDO successfully tested the MPATGM in the Rajasthan desert. This was followed by another successful test next day on March 14, 2019.
  • The Missile was again successfully tested on September 11, 2019 in the test ranges of Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh. This test paved the way for the Army to have developed 3rd generation man portable Anti-Tank Guided Missile indigenously. 

This development will provide an edge to the army as tanks can be destroyed by a man portable tripod launcher and moreover many countires will eye to buy this so it will also increase our exports in near future.
