Anti-tank missile Nag test-fired successfully


NEW DELHI (BNS): India has successfully flight tested the Nag missile against both stationary and moving targets.

An all weather fire-and-forget anti-tank guided missile, Nag’s successful tests came on August 5 and 6, according to the DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation).

Nag is one of the five missile systems under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme of the DRDO, which was initiated under the leadership of former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.

"India successfully flight tested NAG Missile against Stationary and Moving Target in presence of user on 5th and 6th August 2008,” DRDO said in a brief statement today.

The missile design started in 1888 and the first test was carried out in November 1990. It uses a high explosive anti-tank warhead to penetrate the composite or explosive reactive armour of modern tanks. Nag would replace the Russian origin 9K113 Konkours and the Milan M2 anti-tank missiles.
