Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) is anticipating a Request for Proposal (RFP) from the Indian Army for the procurement of the indigenously developed Nag anti-tank guided missile (ATGM). Following the successful completion of trials earlier this year, BDL expects orders for the Nag missile to be placed by 2025.

The Nag ATGM has been categorized as a fire-and-forget, third-generation missile, offering significant advancements over previous generations. It boasts an imaging infrared (IIR) seeker, enabling effective engagement with static and moving targets in both day and night conditions.

Capabilities:

  • Fire-and-forget: The Nag is a third-generation ATGM, meaning the launch operator can acquire and lock onto the target before firing, and the missile then autonomously guides itself to the target.
  • Day and Night Operation: The Nag utilizes an imaging infrared (IIR) seeker, enabling it to engage stationary and moving targets effectively in both day and night conditions.
  • High Performance: With an operational range of up to 4 km and a tandem high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead, the Nag delivers potent firepower against armoured targets.
  • Top Attack Capability: The Nag’s top-attack mode allows it to strike from above, overcoming the limitations of traditional line-of-sight ATGMs and minimizing the risk of counterfire.
  • Platform Compatibility: The Nag can be deployed from various platforms, including the Nag Missile Carrier (NAMICA) armoured vehicle, a variant of the BMP-2 Sarath.

Additional Specifications:

  • Length: 1.834 m
  • Diameter: 0.158 m
  • Weight: 44 kg
