DRDO’s Nag ATGM Disappoints Army, Fails To Meet Mission Objectives During Trials
The state-run DRDO as well as the Indian Army have received a major setback as the user trials of the third-generation Nag anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) failed to achieve the desired results. DRDO officials have admitted that the Nag anti-tank missile with its carrier NAMICA have given an underwhelming performance in the Mahajan Firing Range in Rajasthan yesterday. The user trials were witnessed by senior Army officers who have asked DRDO to be better prepared for the next trial. During the trials, four Nag missiles were fired of which only one could hit the target. The remaining failed to deliver accurate results since the equipment on-board the weapon failed to function properly.
