The missile hit the target, a dummy tank, and destroyed it with precision, said the DRDO.

The low weight, fire and forget, anti-tank guided missile was launched from a man-portable launcher integrated with a thermal sight, news agency ANI quoted the DRDO as saying.

The missile hit the target, a dummy tank, in direct attack mode and destroyed it with precision, the DRDO said. “The test has validated the minimum range successfully,” it said.
Comments“All the mission objectives were met. The missile has already been successfully flight-tested for the maximum range. The missile is incorporated with state-of-the-art miniaturised infrared imaging seeker along with advanced avionics,” the DRDO said.

Were the Milan-2Ts a interim solution?

Pretty much.

There is lot more dev (and testing + cert) that needs to be done on this indigenous platform for it to then get economy of scale order from MOD.

Given seemingly entrenched nature of MOD's bureaucracy and lobbying networks, that could all take some years on top of what one would otherwise expect.... like it already has and will on other projects.

Imagine a superobese guy adjusting to new exercise regimen/pressure imposed (from reality that is catching up more and more on everyone else). He got used to big ole cushy lifestyle before (in mind, heart, body all of it) and its not going to be easy to get him lean and mean esp in relative "overnight" time.

No amount of brochures and program names (i.e simple array of treadmills and such) is really going to bring results quickly. The research labs, talented teams are all the (far better + disciplined) "can do" coaches, motivators and instructors if you will. The private conglomerates are the (far improving) supply of gym facilities themselves.

The intent is to manufacture some deep aura of change with that...while working with the fat reluctant slob that we got.

I can understand the newer intent/approach in the end....but its not going fast enough regardless.
