OTRK "Iskander-M" tested at the sea test site near Arkhangelsk

The Iskander-M operational-tactical missile system (OTRK) was tested in sea conditions. The commander of the Western Military District, Alexander Zhuravlev, announced the conduct of a military-technical experiment in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.


According to the commander-in-chief of the Western Military District, in early July 2020, a military-technical experiment was carried out at the central naval training ground of the Ministry of Defense in the Arkhangelsk Region using the Iskander-M OTRK. The experiment involved the calculation of the OTRK from the ZVO, which launched a missile at the target and hit it. The commander did not give other details of the experiment.

As part of a military-technical experiment of the Ground Forces with practical launches in early July at the state central maritime range of the RF Ministry of Defense in the Arkhangelsk Region, the calculation of the Iskander-M missile system of the missile brigade of the Guards Combined Arms Army of the Western Military District hit the target perfectly

- quotes the publication of the words of Zhuravlev.

Note that in July of this year, the Ministry of Defense made a decision to engage the Iskander-M missile launcher to attack enemy ships and landings to cover the coast. This exercise will be included in the standard missile combat training program from this year.

OTRK "Iskander-M" is in service with missile brigades of the RF Ground Forces. Equipped with cruise and ballistic missiles. According to the Chief of the Missile Forces and Artillery of the Ground Forces, Lieutenant General Mikhail Matveyevsky, to date, the potential of the Iskander-M OTRK is less than half realized.

    Where was the target?
    On land or at sea?

    If at sea, on the move or at anchor?

    We have such devices !, but we will not tell you about them.

    They would show.
    Cheer up the population of the country.

        With the help of new homing heads, the Iskander-M can also work against mobile sea targets, that is, like an anti-ship missile, as we wrote about it two years ago.
        The Rocket Brigade of the Southern Military District for the first time conducted training launches on surface targets


        The servicemen of the missile formations began training to destroy surface ships. The first exercises were held in the Southern Military District. Until now, the Iskander-M missile systems (RK) have not been able to effectively engage moving targets. According to experts, new types of homing heads - optical-electronic and radar - made it possible to expand combat capabilities. The ability of missile formations to destroy sea targets will make Russian shores impregnable.

        Units of the Orsha Guards Missile Brigade of the Southern Military District conducted tactical exercises with launches, including electronic, of Iskander-M missiles, Izvestia was told by the Defense Ministry. All training tasks have been completed, added in the department.

        The past maneuvers are the first experience of Russian missile forces in the fight against naval targets. Until now, it was believed that the Iskander-M missile system could effectively engage only stationary targets. The fact is that the rocket was aimed not at a specific target, but at a point on the ground and flew along the given coordinates. Such a warhead can be guaranteed to destroy a headquarters, an ammunition depot or a missile silo. However, the system was not effective against ships, like other mobile objects.



        Successful launches against naval targets in southern Russia may indicate that homing systems are entering the missile forces, said military expert Dmitry Kornev. Apparently, we are talking about optoelectronic and radar systems. In the first case, a visual image of the object is loaded into the rocket software, for example, a photograph of a ship. Upon arrival, the rocket literally sees the target and compares it with the loaded picture, independently adjusting its course. The radar system compares the terrain with the specified one. An object protruding above the water surface with a certain size for a rocket is also a unique relief, which it compares with data obtained earlier by reconnaissance.

          They threw me cons that would not ask laughing

          One hell is not clear what was struck there and what.
          What is the missile ?, where is the target ?, what is the target ?, target range? etc.

          The serviceman said:
          "We snorted from Iskander-M. Everyone is happy! We hit the target! Hurray!
          Believe me!" good laughing



          And the guesses of the "experts" remain only guesses.
          "Experts" who do not possess information, but only speculate, are not experts, but balabolians.
          Now the word balabol has been replaced by a blogger in order to increase the self-esteem of the chatterbox.

          What kind of "expert" is this if the driver of Iskander knows more than this chatterbox.

      What's the point? R-500 (9M728) of the Iskander-M complex is essentially land version 3M14 of the "Caliber-NK" complex with an artificially low range of up to 500 km and an increased warhead ... request

          There is no astronavigation on the OTRK, only on the ICBM. On OTRK - satellite navigation and updating of the control system according to spacecraft data, aka GLONASS / NAVSTAR. But there is an optical seeker. However, the IRGC made a detachable warhead, and it is flying with a log along different trajectories. In this case, the warhead has a seeker. What prevents us from doing the same or using the experience of 3K54?

    There has never been and there is no Iskander-K complex. These are notions of idle journalists. Initially, there was a 9K720 complex on the 9P76 SPU. It had its own name "Iskander". Then the Iskander-M complex appeared with a 9P76-1 launcher, from which it was possible to launch not only 9M723 ballistic missiles, but also 9M728 cruise missiles. The journalists called this version of the complex "Iskander-K"

    Unfortunately for you, Alexander, Alexey is right. The PPI (information preparation point) of the complex is intended specifically for the introduction of a flight mission into the Iskander's head prior to launch. The time required for this is about 5 minutes.

    The next "delights" of our journalists in terms of "distorting" the statements of the military and designers. As always, everything went according to the scheme "I heard the ringing, but I don't know where it is." Missiles of the Iskander complex have different designations for the missile unit itself (missiles) and the warhead (warheads). was considered the same, regardless of BO: K - cassay, F-high-explosive, A - nuclear = 9M714K, 9M714F, 9M714A), then the Iskander missile has a different designation. , 9M714-9 (for missiles since 723). A warhead had its own designation. The cassette part has the index 9N723. Further, depending on the type of warhead - 1N2004K9 and 722N9K722. The general name of the missile with a cluster warhead has the designation 1M9K722, 5M9K723, 1M9 -723K5, 9M723-1K1. Missiles with a high-explosive warhead has the designation 9M723F, 1M5-9F, 723M9-723F1 ...
    It is because of such a variety of combat equipment that the "rumor" arose that the Iskander complex had as many as 5 types of aeroballistic (another stupid definition). Air-launched rockets are called aeroballistic rockets. And for Iskander, because of the peculiar trajectory, it would be more correct to call the missile quasi-ballistic. In reality, there is currently a serially produced missile part 9M723-1, a cruise missile 9M728. A new missile for the Iskander-M complex was tested in 2016, but it has not yet been seen in photographs from the troops.

    With the help of new homing heads, the Iskander-M can also work against mobile sea targets, that is, like an anti-ship missile, as we wrote about it two years ago.

    Without a running engine? A "blank" (a rocket with a burned-out engine and warhead) falls on the target. Gas-jet rudders do not work due to lack of fuel, aerodynamic rudders can control this “blank” in a very narrow range.

    Quote: Boa constrictor KAA
    It is quite logical. If the Pacific Fleet does not even have a ship capable of pushing the American missile cruiser out of the tervod, this does not mean at all that Iskander-M, who took this RRC for escort, cannot drown it.

    What will he take for escort? There is simply no radar station in the complex. In order for the Iskander to hit the same ship (and this is a GOS with a KVO of about 5-7 meters), a radar correlation GOS is required. And it works by comparing a digital map of the area. with really available. And only RUKs (reconnaissance and strike complexes), which are not yet available, can give such an opportunity.
