The hardware is being rolled out across Russia’s military brigades to replace the obsolete Tochka-U system. Russia plans to have the replacement complete across all districts by 2018.
According to the Ministry of Defence, personnel of the Central MD have already undertaken training on the system, and the hardware has been integrated into the joint information system.
There are two principal types of missiles used by the Iskander-M system: the 9M723 tactical ballistic missile that can use several types of conventional warheads; and the R-500 cruise missile.
