    Anyone knows How many Iskander units Russian armed forces have (the truck with the dual missiles hidden inside) Russia have in total?  

    I hope Russia will get something like 500 vehicles with 2 missiles each. for a total of 1,000 missiles to be prepared in case of a major conflict. Better to have them just in case. (Of course each launcher vehicle unit needs 4-5 other vehicles in support.. )

    Voice of Russia in Portuguese talk about the Iskander-M exercises, and said the precision is 30 centimeters

    That would be better than Vikhr Missile with 0.6m+ CEP.

    Most likely a mistake in translation?

    That small of a difference (even though it isn't 30 cm) doesn't really do anything in a missile the size of the Iskander.

    Russian Army to Deploy Three More Iskander Missile Brigades by 2016

    MOSCOW, October 1 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian army will bring the number of brigades armed with Iskander-M theater ballistic missile systems to seven by 2016, Commander-in-Chief of the Land Force, Col.Gen. Oleg Salyukov, said Wednesday.

    "There are four Iskander-M brigades in service with the army," Salyukov told reporters.

    "One more brigade in the Central Military District will be equipped with Iskander systems by the end of 2014, while the Southern and Eastern military districts will each receive an Iskander brigade in 2015," the general said.

    The Iskander-M is a missile system equipped with two solid-propellant single-stage guided missiles.

    The supply of the system is carried under a contract signed in 2011 between the Russian Defense Ministry and military industrial corporation Mashinostroyenia.

    Iskander is one of the country's most powerful missile strike systems used by the Russian Ground Forces. The systems were successfully tested in 2007. The Russian Army currently uses its Iskander-M and Iskander-K variants.

    somewhere between 250 and 500 missiles. Maximum composition includes 24 firing units (2 missiles each) and 24 reloads + 20 other vehicles while standard compositions includes 12 firing units and 12 reload vehicles. (5th brigade included).

    I thought it was 12 firing units, 12 reloading vehicles. And a whole bunch of support/command/maintenance.

    EDIT: I should have scrolled higher, Viktor said exactly that.

    Russia Will Test Launch Iskander-M Missiles During March Drills

    Missile force battalions of Russia's Central Military District will test launch Iskander-M tactical ballistic missiles in the course of military drills after undergoing a command and control training course.

    MOSCOW, January 15 (Sputnik) — Two missile battalions of the Central Military District (CMD) will test launch a number of Iskander-M tactical ballistic missiles during exercises in southern Russia in March, CMD spokesperson Col. Yaroslav Roshupkin said Thursday.

    "In early March, after the completion of military training courses, the full-size unit will take part in combat launching exercises at the Kapustin Yar testing range," Roshupkin said.

    The spokesperson added that two CMD missile force battalions have arrived at a testing range in Astrakhan Region to undergo an Iskander-M command and control training course ahead of the drills.

    The units were fully equipped with Iskander-M theater ballistic missile complexes last November.

    Following tactical drills, the missile forces are expected to return to their home base in Orenburg Region, which is fitted with the infrastructure needed to house the Iskander-M complexes, Roshupkin said.

    Also known as SS-26 Stone, the Iskander is a powerful missile strike system with "quasi-ballistic" capability in use by the Russian Ground Forces. The missiles have a range of 400 km (250 miles) and can reportedly carry conventional and nuclear warheads.

    Tests of the system were successfully carried out in 2007 and it is supplied by the Mashinostroyenia military-industrial corporation under a 2011 contract with the Russian Defense Ministry.

    Viktor,

    That his how it was shown in a MAKS show a few years ago. If you look carefully, you see the top part of the vehicle is different, enabling it to carry more missiles. I guess that configuration was not adopted in service.

    Russian Missile Operators Brought Up to Speed on Iskander-M

    Missile operators of Russia’s Eastern Military District will undergo a special retraining course to handle the state-of-the-art Iskander-M ballistic missile system.

    During the six-month course at a test range in the southern Astrakhan region the missile system operators will be learning the ins and outs of the advanced tactical ballistic missile complex to culminate in a real-life missile launch.

    It is the second unit of the Russian Missile Forces to be armed with the Iskander-M complexes, military officials said.

    The Iskander-M (also referred to as NATO's reporting name SS-26 Stone) is characterized by high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to place the system in operational readiness.

    The system is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 500 kilometers, with a precision of around 30 centimeters.

    It can hit troop concentrations or underground command centers, depending on the warheads placed on the rockets. If necessary, its missiles can also be armed with nuclear warheads.

    The Iskander-M missile system has been used by the Russian military since 2006.

    I follow a financial blog where an australian keeps popping up with usa military tech , weapons and  keep making claims how it is superior to russians nd  chinese mismatched and stoved military tech . Thanks for informing mate . Just another bogus claim of his .


    His 2nd claim :- Iskander missiles are not "quasi" ballistic, their trajectory is ballistic. The 'missile' part distinguishes it as not being a ballistic rocket, it is a guided terminal maneuvering missile. So there's no 'quasi' about it, these are weapons which fit the category of precision guided theater ballistic missiles, like the US ATACMS missile system. So US has an equivalent of Iskander .


    Is it also true ?
