As part of the exercise "Vostok-2014" was the launch of missiles "Iskander-M"
For the first time, combat training launches of Iskander-M missiles took place in the Eastern Military District. The event took place as part of the Vostok 2014 command and staff exercise, which are being held these days in the territory from Anadyr to Vladivostok.
The head of the Rocket Forces and Artillery of the Ground Forces, Major General Mikhail Matvievsky, confirmed that for the first time combat missiles with high mobility and maneuverability were involved in the current Vostok-2014 exercises.
“The Iskander-M complex is the best in the world,” commented the head of the missile forces and artillery Mikhail Matveyevsky. - This is our formidable weapon. This is the guarantor of our safety. And the blows, as you observed, are beautiful, precise and graceful, so to speak.
It should be noted that Iskander-M is ready for battle in just 20 minutes and strikes targets at a distance of several hundred kilometers. The accuracy of destruction is usually up to 30 centimeters, therefore such missiles are used to eliminate small-sized and area targets deep in enemy positions.
