Dhruvastra: India successfully test fires helicopter-launched anti-tank NAG missile in Odisha — Watch the video

In the wake of ongoing border tensions between India and China, trials of ‘Dhruvastra’ anti-tank guided missile were conducted successfully at ITR Balasore in Odisha by the Defence Research and Development Organisation.

HELINA (Helicopter-based Nag Missile), now named Dhruvastra, is one of the most advanced anti-tank weapons in the world.

With a minimum range of 500m and a maximum range of 4 km, the missile has been developed to engage highly fortified enemy tanks in all weather conditions with day and night capabilities.

It is a 3rd generation fire-and-forget-class missile. In addition, it uses an imaging infrared seeker in lock-on-before-launch mode.

The robust imaging algorithm has made the missile hit the target even at a distance of 4 km in severe summer desert conditions.
