Russia’s Military district has performed simulated launches of Iskander-M tactical missile system, RMD's press spokesman Alexander Gordeyev said Friday.
"Members of a missile brigade of the Eastern Military District deployed Iskander-M missile complexes at the Bidzhan test range and performed electronically simulated launches as part of a test check for the winter training season," Colonel Gordeyev was quoted as saying by Sputnik.
The system is characterized by high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to be readied for launch.
The system is capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 500 kilometers, with a precision of around 30 centimeters.
It can hit adversary troops or underground command centers, depending on the warheads placed on the rockets. If necessary, its missiles can also be armed with nuclear warheads.
The advanced missile system has been used by the Russian military since 2006.
