India has reportedly canceled its $500 million contract for Israeli anti-tank missiles after the country’s defense manufacturing sector conducted successful tests and promised to deliver an indigenous alternative within two years.

Following a series of successful trials of the man-portable anti-tank guided missile (MPATGM) by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), India has notified Israel that it will “abandon” the agreement to purchase Spike missiles from Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, government sources told the Indian Express.
