The DRDO had test fired Nag missile even on June 13 in desert ranges of Rajasthan.

The missile incorporates an advanced passive homing guidance system and possesses high single-shot kill probability. It is designed to destroy modern main battle tanks and other heavily armoured targets.

In September 2016, Nag missile successfully hit the target 4 km away during a night trial in the Mahajan Field Firing Range, Rajasthan. DRDO had described the test as a success, as it hit the Thermal Target System (TTS), used as the target for the missile, with bull's eye precision.

Nag was developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program (IGMDP).

Nag missile has a land variant and an air launched variant. The land version has a range of upto 4 kms while the air launched version has a range of around 7-10 kms.
