    Just for the giggles...

    CIA used to gather their information from CNN... of course they actually were those who gathered the information after they've infiltrated CNN and still direct and use CNN for their purpose, but funny things happened around it.

    You have not answered the question.. why wouldn't the CIA or US government agencies
    use the internet and browse on military forums for updated precise information on Russia military hardware and its location on the world map? Why not? Satellites are not real time ,
    and bad weather can make impossible to see things ,and having quick information from a military forum ,does not hurt . Real military people visit websites like this.. and or family members or friends.. and leaks of information happens.. So it will be Foolish for them not to
    have people monitoring military websites for any leaks.. or any extra information they missed.
    And Rambo curiosity is a bit out of place.. he wants to know exact location ,with coordinates
    of anything for what? What you see on google satellite images is crap.. you can can barely
    see things as small as an S-300 or Iskander... So no reason to ask for coordinates of anything ,since there is nothing to see .. unless the information is needed for something not good .

    Go to MP.net or whatever is the name called and start asking for exact location of Israeli defenses on its territory ,its coordinates and they will show you the exit door. Because such information can be used by terrorist or any opposing nation.

    Because the CIA and US governments spend huge amounts of money on their own intel networks, they don't need to ask.

    They can find S-300 and Iskander battalions on their own, they have a rather large amount of satellites.

    You can EASILY find one if it is stationary or parked.

    No actual intel agents come here.

    And how did you know ?
    or don't tell me ,you don't know a shit about that..
    No ,they cannot easily find anything on bad weather , neither US does not have million of satellites and can see everything at same time.. it did not hurt to do a visit to any military forum website ,to get withing few seconds updated information.. about anything..

    Maybe Rambo have an extraordinary curiosity i have never seen before , but it is scary..
    He have an obsession to know every single location and position of every S-300 ,S-400
    how many , and exact coordinates.. same with Submarines.. Shocked  and interested to know
    also about Venezuela ,Syria and Egypt exact S-300s positions. Neutral   and the movement of Russian troops . I don't see why anyone will need to have such information .. No  

    and im not the only one who noticed this..

    Yeah, it should be 9 regiments.

    Does anybody know where we have the fourth site / regiment around Moscow? Any news in the Russian Media about it?

    Im not sure how much sense it has to follow locations of those regiments as for sure they are prone to frequent changes, etc

    but here is something you might find useful



    So regardless of the reasons for having so irrelevant information ie.. of coordinates of equipment and movement of Russian army troops.. is too much information and not relevant about this forum.. Russian regiments positions and movements?  is that for real? who wants to know that? and why? Shocked  and Why would anyone ask information about that?

    "Hello Sean, how many S-300/400 batteries have you found?"

    "Not many yet, I'mma just go on the internetz and ask random people that for all I know, could be either KGB/FSB operatives, or autistic platypuses."

    "Good idea Sean, that seems like a more reliable source than all of our analysts, intelligence networks, satellites, and our human intel.

    I'm sure this forum or any forums ain't on top priority for collecting intels. But posting the EXACT location of your military hardware/unit never be a good idea.
    Remember this is public forum and any sensitive information you post will eventually find it's way to your enemy. Think twice before post.

    The CIA or US government agencies are not the only possible adversaries.

    Like I said - if in doubt, don't post such info.

    Then again I'm quite sure rambo57 is innocent; I remember planeman back in mp.net used to gather info about air defences of all countries too; which he compiled into a series of some great and informative reports; complete with his own analysis and so on.
    It is exactly such 'processed' information BTW, that might just be of some interest to foreign intelligence networks or terrorist organizations; even if the actual data collected is public or can be ascertained with their own resources.

    No actual intel agents come here.

    Well I mean we already have one for sure and the man makes no secret of it; SOC Smile

    It's folly to assume that which we have no idea about. I for example, have no idea how intelligence services gather their info or what resources they use.

    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.

    More publicity on the Iskaner-M upgrade. Have not seen my highlighted part before

    Russia is developing new types of ballistic missiles for the Iskander-M tactical nuclear-capable missile system, the deputy head of Russia's missile forces Aleksandr Dragovalovsky told radio station Russian News Service.

    Dragovalovsky did not specify the exact types of missiles being developed for the system. Konstrukskoye Buro Mashinostroyeniya, the design bureau behind the Iskander, said in a press release this week that the system currently has four types of ballistic missiles and one cruise missile. "This system, the Iskander-M, has a great potential for modernization, which is happening in terms of armaments and missiles in particular. That is, the standard array of missiles is growing and new missiles are being developed," Drugalovsky said. Russia's military conducted its first nighttime test of the Iskander-M on Thursday.

    The missile force chief added that the base chassis is also being made more reliable, and should remain in service for the relatively long term. Drugalovky also said that 9K98 Smerch multiple rocket launcher and its modernized version, the Tornado-S, would receive guided missiles. The 9K98 system currently has a range of up to 120 kilometers.

    The Iskander-M is a rapid-deployment tactical system designed for eliminating targets at a range of up to 500 kilometers. It is intended for small-scale targets such as missile systems, multiple rocket launchers, long-range artillery, airfields and command posts.
