New Delhi: Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has suffered a setback, as the anti-tank missile Nag failed in its trails.
The trials were held in Rajasthan where only one of the four Nag missile that were fired managed to hit the target. The reason for this is being attributed to glitches in the equipment on-board the weapon. There were many officials from the Indian Army as well as from DRDO present at the site of test.
DRDO has been asked by the army official to come better prepared in future as they were not impressed at all by the performance of the missile. The missile is under development since a lot of time now and may take a few more years of research before it is finally inducted.
As per sources the officials from the army were not even impressed by the carrier of the Nag missile called NAMICA which is a modified Russian-origin BMP-II personnel carrier, as it failed to satisfy the users in displaying its capabilities in water during the trials.
