    Launchers VTRK will be placed on armored vehicles


    The development of high-precision tactical missile systems - VTRC - the beginning of the Ministry of Defense. These products have already received the informal name "pocket Iskander." Launchers compact VTRK will be placed on armored vehicles "Tiger" or "Typhoon." Despite their diminutiveness, the complexes should hit any targets - equipment, fortifications, as well as points of contact and control. They are designed to deliver high-precision strikes in the rear of a potential enemy at a depth of 100 km. VTTRK will help divisions and brigades to establish close cooperation with drones, reconnaissance vehicles and connection formations.

    Everything here is ok with small exception. This is technically not a mini Iskander. But a two stage Hermes.

    The first 2018 brigade set of the Iskander-M missile system was sent to the troops

    As far as can be judged, we are talking about the delivery of the first of two additional brigade kits of an operational-tactical missile system (OTRK) 9К720 Iskander-M under a contract concluded in August 2017 by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation with with Scientific Production Corporation "KB Mashinostroeniya". According to available information, this kit is designed to re-equip the 448th missile brigade of the 20th Guards Combined Arms Army of the Western Military District stationed in Kursk.
    To date, the 448th missile brigade has remained the only of the 12 deployed rocket brigades in the Armed Forces of Russia, retaining in service the outdated Tactical missile system 9К79-1 Tochka-U. The remaining 11 missile brigades received from 2010 to 2017 the brigade sets of the Iskander-M Tactical missile systems (nine brigades were re-equipped from Tochka-U tactical missile systems and two brigades — the 3rd and 12th — were additionally formed). The upcoming rearmament of the 448th missile brigade at the with Iskander-M was reported at the end of 2017.

    It can be assumed that the second brigade set of the Iskander-M Tactical missile system under this contract will be delivered in 2019 and should be used to form a new missile brigade as part of the 8th Guards Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District.

    Extended Iskander hit the video

    An unusual modification of the operational-tactical missile complex "Iskander" appeared in the release of television news.

    Specialists bmpd drew attention to the increased length of launchers. In their opinion, this may indicate that the Iskanders are adapted for firing 9M729 cruise missiles developed by the Novator Design Bureau. This is the land version of the Iskander KR with a range of up to five thousand kilometers. Suspect Suspect

    The video is the One That George1 posted to posts above.

    Can this be the 9M279 launcher?

    The cruise missiles they had in Iskander missiles are not the same as the naval or air launched models.

    They complied with the INF treaty and had range limits. They likely had a modular super heavy warhead that reduced fuel capacity, but increased effect on target, or perhaps allowed multiple targets to be engaged with one missile.

    Now that the INF treaty is being ripped up of course they can put 5,000km range cruise missiles on Iskander launchers...

    Of course if the range is extended to over 5,500km then the INF treaty does not apply then either...

    The larger(?) launcher.

    dino00: It should be the ground launched version of the Kaliber system.

    The cruise missile launching version is called Iskander-K....K as in 'Kaliber'. If you remember the original version, it had long slender launch tubes, with lots of space in between in case the cruise missile required 'modernization'.



    They could of just as easily added wider launch tubes, where the cruise missile had large conformal fuel tanks attached to them.

    Or stack three or four wide and two deep to carry 6-8 ready to fire missiles per vehicle...

    If it was Kalibr then it would have violated the INF treaty because it has a range of 2,600km or so, so it clearly was not Kalibr.

    I think 5 without the top cover. It needs those side hatches and the middle one is thus left out Smile

    It would look like a Smerch bigger brother.

    The first cruise missile of the Iskander-K was an offspring of the Kaliber, because of the INF treaty. Now the russian army could use the "normal" Kaliber.



    Kaliber for "coastal defence".



    Newer Version, called Klub-T (Export).

    They could also use a heavy BAZ or MZKT or the new KaMAZ truck and fit a standard USKS onto it.
