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.
