The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:
27 Feb. 2019 -- MSR Prasad, director general of missiles and strategic systems at the India Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in New Dehli, said the Nag anti-tank missile will undergo final user trials in May and June, with production to kick off later this year.
Winter user trials of the Nag anti-tank missile were completed in December 2018 -- preceded by validation trials of the a fire-and-forget anti-tank missile’s imaging infrared seeker head, which caused repeated delays due to the technical inadequacies.
The Indian Army is expected to purchase 8,000 Nags with an initial order of 500. The anti-tank missile system will be manufactured by India’s sole missile producer, state-owned Bharat Dynamics Ltd. in Hyderabad, India.
