DRDO successfully fires Nag ATGM
India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has successfully test-fired the indigenously developed third generation Nag anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) in the ranges of Rajasthan, India.
The test firing saw the ATGM missile twice successfully strike targets at different ranges and conditions with high accuracy.
The Nag ATGM is a new generation vehicle-mounted fire-and-forget missile with advanced imaging infrared radar seeker and integrated avionics.
Following the successful flight trials, along with the flight test conducted in June, the complete functionality of the Nag ATGM along with launcher system NAMICA has been established, marking the successful completion of development trials of the missile.
