New Delhi, September 9: India’s indigenously developed 3rd generation Anti Tank Guided Missile (ATGM), Nag was successfully flight tested twice by DRDO on Saturday against two different targets in the ranges of Rajasthan.
The ATGM Nag missile has successfully hit both the targets at different ranges and conditions with very high accuracy as desired by 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 latest test marks the completion of testing of Nag missiles which can hit its target up to 4 Kilometers. India will also procure Israeli Spike Anti Tank Guided Missiles.
Kalyani Rafael Advanced Systems (KRAS), a joint venture between Kalyani Strategic Systems Ltd, and Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defence Systems had inaugurated its facility in Hyderabad in August. It will be manufacturing the Spike anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) Spike and other defence products.
The facility, the first in the private sector to manufacture missiles, plans to start production in few weeks. Rafael has invested $70 Million in the unit.
