Nag is a "fire and forget" anti-tank guided missile with a range of 4 to 6 kilometers. Nag can be mounted on an infantry combat vehicle known as"NAMICA" or on the advanced light helicopter. It has been developed by DRDO as a part of IGMDP (Integrated Guided Missile Development Program).It will be used by both army and airforce .

It claimed to be first anti-tank missile which has a complete fiberglass structure.Also a smokeless nitramine based propellant has been developed for the Nag , which makes its detection by enemy tougher.

The missile was named as NAG(Snake) because of its trajectory path. Rather than following the elliptical path as other missiles, it hits the target as a snake hits its enemies. The missile goes near to target in elliptical path and suddenly raises upwards and then bends at a certain angle and hits the target.
