Developers claim the missile is far superior than Javelin of US and Israeli Spike missile. It assimilates advanced technologies including the imaging infrared radar (IIR) seeker with integrated avionics, a capability which is possessed by few nations in the world
"Missile hit both the targets under different ranges and conditions with very high accuracy as desired by the Armed Forces," DRDO claims.
Nag, which has 'fire & forget' and 'top attack' capabilities, will be of immense support to the mechanized infantry and airborne forces of the Indian Army.
"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," DRDO added.
"It is likely to take time ranging from 2 to 3 years as after this user trial, user exploitation trials and so on are to be conducted. Then the actual manufacturing process will start, eventually leading to the induction of the first viable lot," Rahul Bhonsle, a retired Indian Army brigadier and defence analyst explains.
