Now an Indian missile that can blow up enemy tanks whether it’s day or night

"It’s a potent missile capable of destroying enemy tanks whether it’s day or night"

It has taken a long time coming but it’s finally here. On Sunday, India successfully conducted three tests of indigenously built anti-tank guided missile Nag in Pokharan. It’s a potent missile capable of destroying enemy tanks whether it’s day or night.

This light weight missile has advanced ‘fire and forget’ system that enables it to track targets once it’s launched. An on-board camera keeps feeding the system with live images of the intended target. This DRDO developed missile can be launched from air or land. The land version of the missile has range of about 4 KMs which is just enough in a battle field, remember the famed battle of Longewala when swarms of Pakistani tanks charged toward Indian defence. This is the exact missile you need in such a scenario.

The Nag missile has had a history of failures amidst a few successful tests. But as of late everything is on track and hopefully it will soon be inducted into the forces which are in serious need of some advanced lethal weaponry.
