    A significantly improved tracked Nag Missile Carrier (NAMICA) is up for user trials in July. The Army had asked for the following changes to be made to the NAMICA platform:

    1. Reduction of all-up weight to 15 tons.
    2. Improved reliability of missile launcher platform drive mechanisms.
    3. Provision of higher-resolution target acquisition sight for the gunner.
    4. Enhanced user-friendliness in acquisition of target through reduced offset between sight and missile seeker-acquired target scene image.
    5. Improved amphibious performance.
    6. Provision of a Target Surveillance and Acquisition Sight for the crew commander.

    Excellent summarization Shaitan!

    Thank you for sharing that.

    Going by the picture in the article, it is still going to be a BMP-mod!

    You have to use something instead of BMP-2..

    or

    May be a 5-4 wheel Modified BMP with wider tracks..

    looks like they have place the Electric optical device at the back that too with linear actuator so that it can get target lock on.

    Does the Namica carry more Nags inside the chases for reloading?

    It looks an under utilization of such an large vehicle like BMP.
