Newspatrolling: In a major breakthrough for the country, the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has successfully tested the Nag missile. The Nag missile is an indigenously developed third generation anti-tank guided missile (ATGM). The test was conducted in a desert area of Rajasthan. This was the final test in a series of tests and it marks the completion of development trials of Nag missile. In the final trial, the Nag missile successfully hit two dummy targets that were placed in the desert. Nag missile can be very effective against tanks, as it can accurately target them from a distance of up to 7 kilometer. In a statement released by the defense ministry, it has been stated that both tests had different ranges and conditions and the Nag missile performed well in both the tests. The Nag missile has met the requirements of high accuracy, which is an essential need for the armed forces.
“With these two successful flight trials, and the flight test conducted earlier in June in the peak of summer, the complete functionality of Nag ATGM along with launcher system NAMICA has been established and marked the successful completion of development trials of Nag missile,” the defense ministry said.
