The missile has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to engage highly fortified enemy tanks in day and night conditions.
“The missile has fire and forget and top attack capabilities with passive homing guidance to defeat all MBTs (main battle tanks) equipped with composite and reactive armour,” an official said.
The DRDO said the final user trial of the missile was carried out on Thursday at 6:45 am from Pokhran range.
Following the final user trial, the missile will enter into the production phase.
“The missile will be produced by defence PSU Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL), whereas Ordnance Factory Medak will produce the NAMICA,” the DRDO said.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the DRDO and the Indian Army for the successful trial of NAG missile.
