In the test, the ATGM struck the Bulls Eye with accuracy and successfully defeated the target at minimum ranges. The telemetry system recorded the missile’s satisfactory flight performance.
It is challenging to hit the target at lower range which has been successfully achieved by the anti-tank guided missile. With the test, the anti-tank guided missile’s capability to engage targets in a minimum to maximum range has been established, the statement noted. Earlier tests have been successful for the maximum range.
