The indigenously developed anti-tank, all-weather third generation guided missile ‘Nag’ is in the final testing phase and soon will be inducted into the Army. The anti-tank missiles will be mounted on the modified armoured vehicles, reports NDTV.
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Sunday successfully test fired the guided missile, three times in the Pokhran firing ranges, and induction of the Nag anti-tank guided missiles into the Indian Army is imminent.
DRDO officials said, “The missiles were test-fired during both day and night on Sunday during the trials. All three tests were successful.”
The Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) approved the procurement of DRDO’s designed and developed NAG Missile System (NAMIS) at the cost of Rs. 524 crore last year.
The Nag missiles are third generation Anti-Tank Guided Missile that can be fired from the Missile Carrier Vehicle (NAMICA), as well as seek and destroy all known enemy tanks during day and night or under any adverse weather condition.
Successful induction of this missile will give our armoured divisions capability to target enemy armour between a distance of three kilometres to eight kilometres.
