    You have cruise missile iskanders, at least 2 variants I think with one very long range according to US data, you have BM iskander 10-15m precision, you have Iskander-M with electroptical final guidance 5m precision.

    And then probably new stealthier missiles being developed with more modern technology.

The final stage of the rearmament of the missile compound will be a tactical exercise, after which all the personnel of the junction will go by rail to the place of permanent deployment. "

    On the bmpd side, we recall that on November 22, 2017, the Department of Information and Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that at the Kapustin Yar test site a solemn ceremony of handing the brigade kit of the Iskander-M tactical missile system to the personnel of the Western military district (ZVO).

    The personnel of the missile brigade were transferred to several tens of launchers, transport-loading and command-staff vehicles, life support equipment, regulations and maintenance, the point of preparation of information.

    At present, in the 60th Training Center for Missile Troops (located in the Astrakhan Region), the crews of the missile unit began to work out practical actions on a modern missile system.


    On the bmpd side, we will point out that the 152nd Guards missile brigade of the 11th Army Corps of the Baltic Fleet stationed in Chernyakhovsk (the Kaliningrad Region) is the Guards missile brigade of the Western Military District commanded by Guards Colonel Anatoly Gorodetsky.

    On the same day, November 22, when the personnel of the 152nd Guards Missile Brigade received a brigade set of the Iskander-M missile unit in Kapustin Yar, the press service of the ZVO published a report on the continuation of combat training in the old OTRK 9K79-1 "Point -U "(partly duplicating the material of the" Red Star "published a day earlier). Among other things, the message said:

    "In the past year, the connection was transferred to a new organizational and staff structure, the command staff began to implement a new program of combined arms training for young servicemen, and retraining of personnel for work on new missile systems began. At the present time, a considerable part of it is located at a remote training ground where the next teaching. "


    As our blog reported earlier, the magazine "Jane's Defense Weekly" published a satellite image made on February 10, 2017, demonstrating that at the site of the deployment of the 152nd Guards Missile Brigade in Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad Region, eight new tentmobile huts were completed by the time of construction, approximately 54 by 22 meters in size to accommodate the Iskander-M missile defenses, and at least five more TMUs were built.

    The set of the missile complex 9K720 Iskander-M, transferred to the 152nd Guards Missile Brigade, was the tenth and final such brigade kit delivered under the state contract З / 3/1 / 24-11-DGOZ dated August 4, 2011 between the Ministry of Defense of Russia and the AO "Scientific and production corporation KB Mechanical Engineering", as the sole supplier of the Iskander-M OTRK, for the supply of ten brigade sets of the Iskander-M complex.

    Taking into account the brigade set of the Iskander-M missile system delivered in 2010-2011, now 11 missile brigades of the Russian Ground Forces are equipped with this complex.

    In 2013, in accordance with a contract dated August 4, 2011, NPK KB Engineering has transferred to the Ministry of Defense of Russia two brigade sets of Iskander-M missile systems that were supplied to equip the 107th separate missile brigade of the Eastern Military District (stationed in Birobidzhan) and the 1st separate Guards missile brigade of the Southern Military District (Krasnodar).

    In 2014, under this contract, the MSC transferred two brigade sets of the Iskander-M missile defense system, supplied to equip the 112th Guards missile brigade of the Western Military District (stationed in Shuya, Ivanovo Region) and the 92nd Separate Missile Brigade of the Central Military District located in Totskoye-2, the Orenburg region).

    In 2015, under this contract, the MSC transferred two brigade sets of Iskander-M missile systems that were supplied to the 103rd separate Missile Red Banner Brigade of the Eastern Military District (stationed in Ulan-Ude) and the newly formed 12th Separate Missile Brigade of the Southern Military District stationed in Mozdok, North Ossetia).

    Finally, in June 2017, the ninth brigade set of the Iskander-M missile unit entered the equipment of the newly formed 3rd Rocket Brigade of the 29th All-Military Army of the Eastern Military District stationed in the village of Gorny (Chita-46) of the Transbaikal Territory, 70 km to the south from Chita.

    In addition, before the conclusion of the 2011 contract with OAO NPK KB Engineering, the brigade set of Iskander-M missile brigade was equipped with the 26th separate missile brigade of the Western Military District (Luga, Leningrad Region) in 2010-2011. Iskander-M missile was in service with the first 630th separate missile battalion of the 60th training center for the combat use of the Missile Forces and Artillery of the Russian Land Forces in Kapustin Yar (2005-2007), which also carried out the first combat employment of this complex entrance Five-day war with Georgia in August 2008).

    Thus, only one missile brigade remained in the Armed Forces of Russia, retaining the old OTSC "Tochka-U" - the 448th missile brigade of the Western Military District stationed in Kursk.


    On August 24, 2017, it was reported that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation had concluded a new contract with JSC "Scientific and Production Corporation" KB Machine Building "for the supply of two more brigade sets of the Iskander-M operational-tactical missile systems.

    The 448th rocket brigade in Kursk will be rearmed to Iskander-M missile systems.

    As reported on December 5, 2017 by the press service of the Western Military District (ZVO), "the missile connection of the 20th Army of the ZVO will receive new equipment"

    The bmpd comment. Thus, we are talking about the upcoming rearmament of the 9K720 Iskander-M missile systems (operational missile systems) deployed in Kursk by the 448th rocket brigade of the 20th Guards Combined-Arms Army of the ZVO. To date, the 448th rocket brigade has remained the only one of the 12 deployed missile brigades in the Russian Armed Forces, maintaining the obsolete PKK 9K79-1 "Tochka-U". The remaining 11 missile brigades received brigade sets of the Iskander-M missile brigade from 2010 to 2017 (nine brigades were rearmed from the Tochka-U OTRK and two brigades, the 3rd and the 12th, were additionally formed).

    Apparently, the 448th rocket brigade will receive in 2018 the first of two additional brigade sets of the Iskander-M missile defense company under a contract signed in August 2017 by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation with JSC Scientific and Production Corporation KB Mechanical Engineering. that the second brigade set of the Iskander-M missile defense unit under this contract will be used to form a new missile brigade as part of the formed 8th Guards Common Arms Army of the Southern Military District.
