The latest Indian ATGM Nag ready for serial production

33
The Indian Ministry of Defense announced on July 19 that a self-developed anti-tank Nag missile (Snake) is ready to go into mass production. This was made possible by the successful completion of the army’s tests of this ATGM, which New Delhi attributes to the latest arms "third generation".


The latest Indian ATGM Nag ready for serial production


Completion of the summer tests will now pave the way for the production and supply of the missile system to the army.

- explained in the military department of the country.

Testing took place from 7 to 18 July at the test sites in Pokhran, Rajasthan. It consisted of six stages and took place "in extreme temperature conditions," the MO report said. The range and methods of destroying the target were confirmed (direct fire and attack from above). Earlier tests were held in the winter.

All ten missiles fired during the winter and summer testing successfully hit targets.

- notes the Ministry of Defense.

Allegedly, the NAG rocket, operating on the principle of "shot and forgot", is designed to defeat heavily armored enemy tanks in all weather conditions and at any time of the day. Its minimum range is 500 meters. The maximum firing range reaches 4 km, "even in the harsh summer conditions of the desert, which is unique in its class," the MO said.

The carrier is the NAG platform (NAMICA), which can receive up to 6 ATGM.

Earlier, India refused to acquire Israeli Spike ATGMs, relying on its own product.

      But the third generation, and not the ancient second. And ours, it seems, will develop it, after some Honduras.

        You can install on the cart. Yes, that's just the loss of efficiency from such stupid decisions is gigantic

          8-10km ?! Yes you are my friend TALE !!!! There is not a single tank gun that could even shoot at least 4km with a crowbar. Only Soviet designers could create a gun that could (object 120) with a 152mm gun. But the project was poher. 2,5-2,8 is all that the guns can now.

    Now India has already moved into the category of manufacturers of "third generation" ATGMs. It remains only to ask why we keep all these NANOs and Rostec, since we are so calmly bypassed by countries with a reviving scientific school

    If you "look" at the comments, you can turn to the following "message": Look, even the Indian "gypsies" have acquired the PTR -3 generation; and in Russia, and "the horse did not roll!" And there would be no way to turn on the "mind" and stop spanking nonsense .... it hurts! In the "misunderstandings" with the PTR-3, the Russian designers are most likely not to blame! It would be more correct to ask the officials of the Ministry of Defense and the government! As far as I know, in almost all known design bureaus that have developed such anti-tank systems as "Kornet", "Whirlwind", "Chrysanthemum" ..., experimental studies of missiles with a seeker ... (for example, with IK.GOS ... ) by order of the same MO. Design Bureau announced to the Ministry of Defense that they are ready to create PTR-3; but they will cost significantly more than the PTR-2 and are "narrowly specialized" (ie, they may not target well-camouflaged or hidden vehicles ... for a reliable capture, a sufficient contrast of the target with the surrounding "background" is necessary!) And MO - "not wanted "PTR-3 ... or maybe wanted, but the government showed a fig ... they say, pennies are still dumb!" They steal a lot in the country! Many people know the "laser-beam" PT-missiles "Whirlwind" (9M127 ...), but how many people know that missiles of the "line" 9M227 were also developed, incl. and missiles with IK.GSN, and with PRLGSN? Nobody saw the "gopher", but he is! And how many years have "Hermes" been running? You can "remember" and the unfortunate "Autonomy", which was experienced back in the early 90s ...!
    Everyone strives to offend the Russian designer! But not to "caress and feed"!

      When he makes the GOS which does not make the ATGM not competitive then they caress, and for now, the Cornet is not much inferior in price to the complexes of the 3 generation.

    Produces. Rather, the readiness of their independent production was announced.

    I have repeatedly written here that Russia does not manufacture such products not because it cannot, but because their past generation, presented in this article, incl. what Israel produces has an absolutely inadequate price / opportunity ratio.

    Now the next generation matrix is ​​approaching with a much lower cost, then the release will be launched.

    All this has already been covered in the press.

      Now all and sundry produce anti-tank systems. If the Israeli did not match the price and capabilities they would not be bought in Europe. There is enough of their good.

        So that's where the dog rummaged!
        The advertising department of the Israeli military-industrial complex works at VO - the Israeli coolest one, even ...
        And the most Russian ... although he only buys it half the world.
        Unscrupulous advertising is now in use, it is understandable - the era of pure money, loot taxis.

    Why in the Russian Federation do not use the old BMP-1 chassis as a base for anti-tank systems. A great analogue of the Tiger with Cornet would have turned out. And armored and cross-country and floats. And the chassis is a ready-made shaft.
