should it take that long?
Approximately yes
Things need to be tested thoroughly as by 2025 most of the components will arrive and their respective testing will be done atleast 8-9 months post roll out
That's what I heard in a Twitter space
Safely we can consider 10 months too

Ok so I heard it again rollout by 25 December and 2.5 - 3 years for production from that they are planning to deliver first Aircraft by 2029 so FF should happen by 2026 end and 2 years or testings
Makes sense , 2029 is not bad if the timeline is actually met. First lets see if 2025 rollout is achieved or not

DRDO & Indian Army conduct successful trials of indigenous Man Portable Anti-tank Guided Missile Weapon System


Posted On: 14 APR 2024 10:38AM by PIB Delhi

Man Portable Anti-tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) Weapon System, indigenously designed and developed by Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), has been field evaluated in different flight configurations several times with the objective of proving the technology with high superiority. The system consisted of the MPATGM, Launcher, Target Acquisition System, and the Fire Control Unit.

Adequate number of missile firing trials have been successfully conducted towards achieving compliance of complete operational envelop as stipulated in the General Staff Qualitative Requirements (Infantry, Indian Army). The Warhead Flight Trials were successfully conducted at the Pokhran Field Firing Range, Rajasthan on April 13, 2024. Missile performance and warhead performance were found to be remarkable.
Penetration trials of the Tandem Warhead System of MPATGM have been successfully completed and it is found capable of defeating modern armour protected Main Battle Tank. The ATGM system is well-equipped with day/night and top attack capability. Dual mode seeker functionality is a great value addition to the missile capability for tank warfare. With this, technology development and successful demonstration have been concluded and the system is now ready for Final User Evaluation Trials leading towards its induction into the Indian Army.
Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh has complimented the DRDO and the Indian Army for the successful trials of the system, terming it as an important step towards achieving self-reliance in advanced technology-based defence system development.
Secretary, Department of Defence R&D and Chairman DRDO Dr Samir V Kamat also congratulated the teams associated with the trials.

awkward ergonomics ? neither here nor there. will need to see a few more pics.

- user neither sitting cross legged nor laying flat on the belly.
- user supposed to grope for the fire switch with his right hand?
I think he is standing in a fox hole and the launcher is at the lip of the fox hole .
And having the trigger on the same side where you have your cheek pressed against the tube is even more awkward than having the trigger on the other side.
