The long-delayed Nag anti-tank missile project of the DRDO has suffered yet another setback as its user trials held recently failed.

In the trials held in Rajasthan in presence of top Army and DRDO officials, the modified carrier of the missile called NAMICA also under-performed, DRDO sources said.

In the trials held at the Mahajan firing range, 4 Nag missiles were fired of which only one could hit the target whereas the remaining failed to do so due to glitches in the equipment on-board the weapon, they said.

Army officials were not happy with the performance and have asked the agency to come better prepared in the future, they said.

The missile has been under development as part of the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program initiated in 1980s and is now expected to take few more years to reach the induction stage.
