The Indian Army has successfully test fired two Spike long-range anti-tank missiles at Mhow in Madhya Pradesh. Army Chief General Bipin Rawat and several commanders witnessed the firing of the newly acquired missiles on Wednesday. Spike is a fourth generation missile which can engage any target with precision at ranges up to 4 kilo metres.
The Spike long-range anti-tank missiles will bolster the Army’s fire power capability. Overall, over 5,000 Spike missiles have been fired across the world with an overall success rate of more than 95 percent. Hence, the induction of the missiles in the Indian Army will help boost its firing capability.
