    oh forgot about that..
    The problem with ATACM will be precision and easy to intercept since it follows a simple predictable trajectory. you cannot ask much for a missile of the 80s.. So lets say
    NATO give ATACM missiles to Ukraine ,with 300km range.. what Russia will do is deploy
    patsir missiles or Buks to defend eastern ukraine from them. and Russia counter with Iskander.
    aimed at kiev parliament.. to wipe the Fascist there.. Smile

    So in short there is nothing that NATO can give ukraine ,that Russia cannot counter it with a better weapon.. and defend against it too. Perhaps a rail gun mounted in a warship,will be a nice one.. but no idea in what way it will help..since the rebels do not have airforce. or navy .For area damage Nothing beats artillery.. cheap ,efficient and cannot be intercepted effectively in mass attacks.

    The thing that they could supply however is chemical weapons.. But if kiev use those ,will lose
    the few support the had in Europe.

    Yes. An electromagnetic gun has been tested by soviet union. Dunno about Russia since they invested in building another A-60 instead (laser). But I imagine they are dabbling in electromagnetic guns again. Cheap? Maybe the gun itself but not the electricity needed to power it.

    The projects for russian railguns is in development, but no idea about recent progress they are not open about it the only thing they present about their railgun progress is what they had in late80's to 90's.

    Previously Iskander ban in relation to an unknown country has been cleared and is ready for export - thumbsup

    Russian arms exporter ready to sell Iskander ballistic missile systems abroad

    The designing bureau was preparing a contract to sell Iskander to a foreign buyer earlier but the agreement was not signed for political reasons

    Would this be the first Iskander export?

    Iran is the obvious guess; I believe it even stated its interest before - but it may be to China too.

    Iskander-Ms can't reach Israel from even western Iran. Not the export model anyway with an artificially downgraded range.

    It's much more a threat to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Monarchies.
    The Saudis have been ruining relations with Russia in recent months, so this can't come at a better time.

    iskander questions

    Post  cracker on Wed May 13, 2015 3:26 am

    hi

    so i've seen conflicting photos of 2 erected missiles and 1 centrally erected missle....... What's the real arrangement of the TEL iskander? it has 1 or 2 missiles aboard, and can it shoot them simultaneously, or, one shortly after the other? How about guiding both missiles, are they twins or separately guided to 2 different targets?

    so if russian army has 60 "iskander" does it mean she has 60 trucks with 2 missiles = 120 or just 60 trucks with 1 missile?

    What's the final number goal of iskander-M ? how many currently in service? (currently = mid 2015, not a 2014 number)

    Realistically, are there any in-service iskander fitted with a nuclear head, or only HE variants?

    The vehicle is amphibious? how protected is it? at least bullet-proof all around including glasses?

    how many men and vehicle types and units does a iskander battery possess?

    credible range is 500 or 480km? it may be more than 500km ? i mean, russia could declare this range to be at advantage secretly having 550 or 600km real range?

    Let's say russia has in the end 150 TEL, it means there are only 150 or 300 missiles available or, are there like stockpiles of missiles to reload the TEL ? the total number of missiles can be as high as 1000?

    ok i've read the topic and found the 1 missile TEL is rather the export variant and the russian army variant has 2 missiles.


    i've got my answer for the composition of a iskander unit too.

    Russia Stations Iskander Missiles in Kaliningrad: NATO cries wolf

    Major General Mikhail Matvievsky, chief of Strategic Missile Forces and the Artillery of the Russian Ground Forces, said earlier this month that a missile brigade redeployed to the Kaliningrad region would be equipped with Iskander-M complexes before 2018.
    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 adversary troops or underground command centers, depending on the warheads placed on the rockets.
    The system can also fire high-precision R-500 cruise missiles.

    6 brigades or 72 firing units.

    4 more brigades and 48 firing units planned.

    Iskander missiles will for sure go much beyond 10 planned brigades. We will see a lot of them no doubt Very Happy

    There are abt. 50 vehicles per brigade with 12 or so launching units and most of the rest - reload so that the launchers can fire some more Very Happy

    Anyway max brigade lvl launcher number is 24 and as Russia will have the remaining 4 brigades by the end of 2017 it can comfortably increase fighting power of the Iskander brigades without

    raising an alarm.

    "Russia could send Iskander short-range tactical missiles to Kaliningrad if United States upgrades German nuclear arsenal, Russia's state-run Interfax news agency cited a military source on September 23, 2015.

    "A final decision well be taken after detailed analysis of the potential threat," the agency cited the source as saying. A day earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, told Germany's ZDF TV channel that some European states have nuclear weapons as part of the framework of NATO's nuclear sharing program. She said this contravenes the Treaty of Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons, which was ratified by 191 nations in 1970 to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. "

    Russia’s Eastern Military District Receives Iskander-M Missile Systems

    A missile unit in Russia’s Southern Military District located in the East Siberian Republic of Buryatia received Iskander-M (NATO reporting name SS-26 Stone) tactical missile systems, the Defense Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Iskander is characterized by its high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to put the system in operational readiness.

    The 9K720 Iskander-M entered into service in 2006 to replace the OTR-23 Oka missile system, retired following the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union.

    In order to master the sophisticated weaponry, the unit's military personnel "passed theoretical and practical training courses" and "performed combat and electronic launches of cruise and ballistic missiles" in Russia's southern Astrakhan Region, the statement reads.

    Another brigade of Iskanders under the district's command has been on duty in Russia's Jewish Autonomous Region in the Russian Far East since 2013.

    Russia is currently performing a $325-billion rearmament program to achieve a 70-percent modernization of its military by 2020.
