Syrian mission "Iskander" confirmed its effectiveness

49
The operational tactical missile system (OTRK) "Iskander" is now not only a regular participant of military parades and exercises, but also a "veteran" of military operations in Syria, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


SPU 9P78-1 with the P-500 cruise missiles of the 9K720 "Iskander-M" missile.

It was in Syria that the missile system passed a full baptism of fire.

Earlier it was reported that Iskander was used in the course of the short-term “888 war” to force Georgia to peace, but at the official level this information was always refuted.

As for Syria, the use of Russian OTRK there was reported at the highest level. For example, in December 2017, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told about this.

“Information on the availability of Iskander launchers at Hmeimim airbase began to appear since the spring of 2016. The terrorists themselves added fuel to the "information fire", reporting powerful explosions in their location, believing that Russian complexes had been worked out for them. During such attacks, the enemy has always suffered significant damage, ”writes the author Dmitry Lemeshko.

No wonder any news on the deployment of such systems in the western part of Russia, causes a nervous reaction of the NATO countries. The accuracy and potential of the missile defense system make any politicians who have taken the path of Russophobia to think.

As noted by military experts, the Syrian mission allowed to test military equipment in extreme conditions, to assess the reserves for its further improvement. “It is also important that the calculations of OTRK have gained invaluable combat experience,” the author concludes.

      Against the background of most metropolitan publications, the Bulletin of Mordovia looks very solid. Articles are written by people - recognized experts in their part. And your comment gives you a layman and even some kind of nationalist, once you’ve dug up not to the content of the article, but to the name of the resource.

      Only you and I are unlikely to guess: what caused the explosion and puffs of smoke? Iskander, Tochka-U, warhead of another missile or a homemade mine of barmolei from a gas cylinder.

      it’s easy to “fall into the temptation”, i.e. become a victim of desa.
      It is important, apparently, only the final result: since the systems of defeat of the airborne forces and others, in a rather limited amount, allowed to turn the tide of the war in Syria, which means they are normal systems.

    I wonder if Iskander can overcome the Israeli missile defense? It is believed that at the moment this is the most advanced system. Syria, Israel are all nearby, the reaction time at the complex should be very small in order to bring down a missile. Israeli "comrades", enlighten, pliz.

      The recently adopted David’s Sling system has been “sharpened” for missiles from Smerch to Iskander (BR Iskander). Those. with a trajectory height of about 50 km. But it is impossible to speak specifically about Iskander. We are threatened by Syrian Points and the various Iranian-made missiles that Hezbollah deployed in Lebanon. With them and the struggle.

        "Prior to Iskander," I understand that rockets with such performance characteristics have not yet learned how to shoot down? Shoot down Kassans and missiles exceeding a speed of 3.5 m are different things. That's why I asked, in order to understand the secret speed of the missile defense, it turns out that our “40” can hook the Iskander and David’s Sling, there’s no campaign. Develop my doubts.

          "Do" means "including Iskander." But they trained on targets similar to Points.
          And Iskander is the development of the Point. The trajectory, the height is the same. Increased accuracy and added maneuvering on takeoff and during descent. Although David’s Prashche it is not important, as intercepts in the middle section in the opposite transverse direction.
          When intercepting towards, then speed is less important.

      Iskander is an unpleasant weapon. BR very quickly delivers 450 kg of explosives over several hundred kilometers with high accuracy. Interception is very difficult - there is very little time for reaction. It’s easier to destroy launchers BEFORE launch than missiles in flight.

    I think the most effective way to deal with the Iskanders is a symmetrical counter-battery.
    Like in artillery. Make similar, lighter missiles with a slightly greater range and less warhead. And strike at launchers. So, I believe, all those whom the Iskanders will threaten will do.

        As you can see, the shape resembles Iskander. Flies along the same trajectory.
        But much smaller and lighter.

        Aviation may not have time to react when the Iskanders (or similar missiles) begin preparing for firing.
        Take-off from the airfield takes time. We checked it in 2006. It’s faster to get a shot at the launch BR

          The deployment of the Iskander brigade in which the EMNIP is about 50 middle-sized and slow-moving tractors and other trucks is still more noticeable and less unexpected than single small Hamas installations disguised in residential quarters. It’s hard not to notice.


          And in any case, your option is counter-reciprocal when rockets have already fallen or fallen on my head. I doubt that this is effective.

          And I doubt that the deployment of the ENT takes less time than raising the on-duty link into the air. Moreover, because of the radius of the Iskanders, it’s a matter of minutes for the aircraft to reach the launch lines.
