The SAMHO Anti Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) being developed under Cannon Launched Missile Development Programme is designed to be launched from the MBT ARJUN tank gun. The cannon launched guided missile SAMHO is intended to destroy modern and future Main Battle Tanks protected with explosive reactive armor, hardened point targets and low flying helicopters. The key feature of the ATGM is a semi-active laser homing guidance

Laser Guided ATGM Successfully Test-fired

Laser Guided Anti Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) was successfully test fired from MBT Arjun Tank at KK Ranges, Armoured Corps Centre and School (ACC&S) Ahmednagar on 22nd Sep 2020. In these tests, the ATGM successfully defeated a target located at 3 km. Laser guided ATGMs lock and track the targets with the help of laser designation to ensure precision hit accuracy.

The missile employs a tandem HEAT warhead to defeat Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA) protected armoured vehicles. It has been developed with multiple-platform launch capability and is currently undergoing technical evaluation trials from gun of MBT Arjun.

Armament Research & Development Establishment (ARDE) Pune in association with High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL) Pune, and Instruments Research & Development Establishment (IRDE) Dehradun have developed the missile.

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh congratulated DRDO for the successfully test firing of the Laser Guided Anti Tank Guided Missile from MBT Arjun at KK Ranges.

Secretary DDR&D & Chairman DRDO congratulated DRDO personnel and industry on the successful test firing.

I think the guy made a mistake , he did not take into account the time lapse between the 2 pics after the missile is fired.

The fins are split into 2 halves for fitment inside the cannister . Just after launch the base fin is unfolded then after sometime the top portion unfolds.

In the first pic only the base portion has unfolded ( when the photo was snapped ) while in the 2nd pic both segments of the fins have completely deployed when the pic was snapped.

The AAD missile itself has undergone a significant iteration. Canards were added upfront and the length of the missile was increased.

I remember reading an article by Tarmak007 on AAD missile and it's project director where the director says that after she came in,she initiated a redesign to ensure that the miss distances were reduced ,the missile was much more maneuverable than before ,and that the missile can withstand the higher thermal speeds due to increased speed and agility now .

So the AAD we are seeing now is AAD 2.0 . An improved smarter and more agile AAD.

AD-1 seems to be similar to XRSAM.

XRSAM seemed to be using a part of AAD missile as booster with second stage being Barak 8 type missile

AD-1 seems to use a longer booster derived from AAD with Akash-NG (Type) of missile as second stage

For your convenience I have made this collage

View attachment 60182

Also the pics of RudraM-2 and RudraM-3 , there is a reason why I am posting both of them

Now study all of them carefully and see where you went wrong.
AD-1 bears no resemblance to XRSAM. AD-1 is using the 1st stage of RudraM-2 ( or vice versa ).

XRSAM is only reusing the " coupled fin and TVC assembly section " from AAD, the booster section is a new development, possibly same or derived from the SFDR ground launch booster. XRSAM 2nd stage is most probably AKASH-NG.

AD-1 has no similarity with either AAD or AKASH-NG. AD-1 1st stage is same as that of RudraM-2 1st stage ( note the fin configuration ) . AD-1 2nd stage is a new design not seen in other missiles currently in development and in the public domain.
