    It is Iskander, and they are not the normal Iskander missiles, they are clearly cruise missiles, but I suspect they are still the 500km range models with the greatly enlarged warheads as per INF treaty requirements.

    Missiles have been fired: the Eastern Military District will receive an Iskander brigade

    The move is in response to US plans to deploy its own long-range weapons in the region.

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation plans to create a new brigade of Iskander-M operational-tactical systems in the Eastern Military District. It will be equipped with aeroballistic and cruise munitions with a range of up to 500 km. This move will be in response to the strengthening of the United States and Japan in the area, experts explain. Since 2019, the United States has been negotiating plans to deploy its own long-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region on the territory of allied countries.

    Rocket East

    Sources in the Russian Ministry of Defense told Izvestia about plans to form a new brigade in the Eastern Military District equipped with the Iskander-M tactical complexes. If a fundamental decision is made, the new military unit will appear before the end of this year.

    FULL ARTICLE: https://iz-ru.translate.goog/1284766/anton-lavrov-andrei-fedorov/rakety-podany-vostochnyi-voennyi-okrug-poluchit-brigadu-iskanderov?_x_tr_sl=ru&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en

    NOTE: The Eastern Military District already has 4 Iskander brigades, to impact Japan and the US it would need to be based on the Sakhalinsk or Kurils islands from which it could cover the Northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.

    Iskander-K in rare winter camo:


    The camo almost looks like frost, and seems temporary. The traditional camo is the dark olive green color underneath.

    Not sure, but Russians have been recently shipping plenty to Banderastan by express post, no deposit required, no shipping charges. Razz

    I suspect they had them in serious mass production for quite some time and would also expect that a lot of expiry dates were rapidly approaching, so I think a lot of the missiles used recently would have needed to be refurbished and overhauled if they would continue to keep them in operational service.

    The excellent results seem to suggest very good value for money because the alternative would be to risk aircraft to deliver a 500-600kg payload, which would not be cheaper I suspect.

    Day night and all weather capable.

    I agree. They are excellent weapon and game changer in Ukraine. Was just wondering about the price

    Couldn't tell you the price.

    The cost to the west will be enormous because Patriot wont be enough to stop these... they are going to have to invest in an IADS for their land forces, or just bury their heads in the sand in denial and except they would lose any future war with a Ukraine level opponent.
