Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has commenced work on the development of Nag Mk II anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) to be integrated into Main Battle Tanks in a Twin launcher configuration with each launcher holding one missile.

idrw.org has been informed that Nag Mk II is an improved lightweight ATGM with performance improvement and a minor range bump. Nag Mk II likely will also adopt some of the technologies from the Helina program (Helicopter borne ATGM) like the new jet vane control system (JVC) into it.

Nag Mk I, is a 3rd gen ATGM, that was in the process of being inducted after extensive tests in 2019. Army variant HELINA and Air Force version Dhruvastra also have successfully demonstrated their capabilities in a series of multi-mission user trials in 2021 from HAL developed Rudra-WSI Hecliopter and is ready for induction into the Indian Armed Forces.
