In a bid to provide more firepower to its infantry units against enemy tank regiments, the Army is planning to buy more than 3,000 Milan 2T anti-tank guided missiles from France in a deal likely to be worth over Rs 1,000 crore.

"An Army proposal in this regard would come up for discussion at a high-level meeting of the Defence Ministry for buying more than 3,000 of the second-generation Milan 2T ATGMs, which are license-produced by Bharat Dynamics Limited in partnership with a French firm," a person with direct knowledge of the matter in the Defence Ministry told ANI.

The Army has a requirement of 70,000 anti-tank guided missiles link (ATGM) of various types and 850 launchers of different types, even as it is looking for third-generation ATGMs with a longer range than that of its existing Milan-2T and Konkurs ATGMs
