Anti Tank Guided Missile Nag Successfully Tested by DRDO Twice in Rajasthan

Anti Tank Guided Missile Nag Successfully Tested by DRDO Twice in Rajasthan”

In a boost to Indian Armed Forces, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully tested Nag, the 3rd generation Anti Tank Guided Missile (ATGM), against two different targets in the ranges of Rajasthan.

What is more commendable is that the missile is being tested for its full four kilometre range. DRDO had described the test as a success, as it hit the Thermal Target System (TTS), used as the target for the missile, with bull's eye precision.

"The missile successfully hit the targets on both the occasions under different ranges with very high accuracy as desired by the Armed Forces. Earlier in June, it too had successfully demonstrated its capability in the peak of summer", he said.Though the missile was to be handed over to Army in June past year, it was deferred due to delay in completion of developmental trials due to some technical reasons. Press Trust of India reports that DRDO has been trying to ramp up country' military capability in sync changing security dynamics in the region.

On July 3, India had successfully test fired a quick reaction surface-to-air short-range missile, which was also indigenously built, from a test range off the Odisha coast.

This was the second developmental trial of the state-of-the-art missile with an aerial target.

Nag missile has a land variant and an air launched variant.
