Russia’s Rostec State Corporation has increased the production of tactical ballistic missiles for 9K720 Iskander systems, Rostec First Deputy Director General Vladimir Artyakov revealed in an interview with the Rossiya-24 TV channel on December 19.
The decision to increase production is apparently meant to support the ongoing Russian special military operation in Ukraine.
“High-precision systems are working effectively, destroying infrastructure on that territory. It is about our famous Iskander system. It is effective enough and works coherently, with a high degree of accuracy and reliability. It must be said here that we are significantly increasing [the production] of launchers and munitions,” Artyakov said.
The Iskander system can launch a variety of ballistic and cruise missiles. Artyakov was most likely talking about the main armament of the system, the 9M723 quasi-ballistic missile that has a range of nearly 500 kilometers.
The 9M723 has several different conventional warheads, including a cluster munitions warhead, a fuel–air explosive enhanced-blast warhead, a high-explosive fragmentation warhead, an earth penetrator for bunker busting and an electromagnetic pulse device for anti-radar missions. The missile can also carry nuclear warheads.
The maneuverable missile is guided by a GLONASS-aided inertial navigation system. It can be also equipped with an optical seeker with a digitized scene-mapping area correlator system for terminal guidance.
The Russian military has been using the Iskander missile system to hit high-value military targets, like gatherings of manpower and equipment, deep in Ukraine’s territory since the beginning of its special military operation with much success.
Iran is also increasing their production of their dreaded Dorito drones and the soon to debut ballistic missiles.
It’s a good thing the US is sending Patriots to Ukraine.
Patriots aren’t designed to intercept the Iskander ballistic missile, but Russia will use them to neutralize the Patriot launchers.
How is that a good thing? The Patriot has a habit of picking the wrong target. The US always sends its junk abroad.
Depends on who sends more, first, faster, reliably, efficiently and economically. Remind me how much a patriot costs, how long it takes to train, how vulnerable to strikes on its way to the warzone is and how US personnel are forbbiden from directly being involved inside Ukraine. None of that applies to unhindered Iranian supplied weapons going to Russia via the Caspian Sea and air space and IRGC operators inside Russia.
I see what you did there – very tongue in cheek. Thanks for the giggle.
We all know too well the credentials of the fabled Patriot system.
That’s the one where the missiles turn around mid flight and come back to attack the launcher.
The battle for Bakhmut is over for now … and Ukraine won.
Please change your pusher.
Everything we produce is highly precise, for example, high precision toilet papers.
People like you who spend their time behind computers really need a reality check. I will personally pay for your trip to Ukraine to get some real life experience.
Go die for the white man war while us bllackss take care your daughters and wife’s Europe and Russia will be blacked by 2060
ESTO VA DIRECTO A LA TERCERA GUERRA MUNDIAL CON LETALES Y MASIVOS MISILES CON LAS FAMOSAS OJIVAS TERMONUCLEARES DE ALTA PRESICION DE SION Y DE LA MADRE RUSIA Y SERA LA MADRE DE TODAS LAS GUERRAS !! LA COSA ESTA MUY CALIENTE VEO MUY ACTIVOS A LOS SIONISTAS DE LA TALASOCRACIA ATLANTISTA EN TODO EL MUNDO !!! GARANTIZADO ASI EL FIN DEL MUNDO ANTES DE 2030 CON TOTAL CERTEZA !!! AL MENOS HASTA AHORA !!!! LAS APUESTAS SON ALTISIMAS !!!!
It’s just as well that the big fireworks start.
There have been too many religious idiots living on the planet.
Russia missile stockpile is not what it used to bee
That’s correct. These days it’s better than ever.
Beef with all the knowledge or Beef with all the FAT. The latter I think.
Im called beef because of my 12 incee bbc lol
Maybe it’s time they turned you out to pasture.
Then the others would get mad cow disease too.
Your mommy read that and died laughing. You should do your homework, Herbert.
Beef is a black man who has recently learned to read and write.
Have some pity for a new world citizen.
Is not write dumbass on the internet it is typing lol
NATO/ U.S Military stockpiles are not the same, they’re leaving themselves defenseless all in a vain attempt to destroy Russia.
Russian is one country; Nato is alliance of 30 countries. Russia building its weapons stockpiles fast but when 30 countries are working together could build faster especially because NATO not at war like Russia. NATO sending weapons that were built to fight Russia or to get rid of old equipment NATO countries are not paying upkeep on them weapons anymore while they spend that surplus income on something else
Income surplus? You’re hilarious. They can’t even have Christmas lights in the UK this year. Fucking muppet.
that’s a lie lol just like the so-called ethnic cleansing
30 countries, each one with its own language, hardware, interests a d strategies. Some of them hate their allies more than they hate Russia ( Turkey vs Greece, Romania vs Hungary, Bulgaria vs Turkey etc.). What can go wrong?
30 countries who are being increasingly populated by Africans not known for their science skill. Might be bad for their weapon producing capabilities.
30 countries with their own military’s dumbass of course they have different strategies and hardware. Language won’t be a problem i know because you speak English i speak English 70 % of the world knows English. Russian going to have problems fighting the swarm
I live in a NATO country and in my country’s parliament there is an argument about which weapons should be bought to replace those sent to Ukraine.
We lack most modern weapons and hope that the US and Israel can sell us what we need, in time.
Yes, pathetic. That’s the situation, jews ruling the world, exterminating large amount of world’s population, dictating the humans how to breath, live, die and fart. It’s total slavery. But most here in the forum still cannot see it. One shilling example of this is Clyde and Darius. They both cannot see it, but stick to the jewish propaganda hate-pictures about “Nazis, luring everywhere” which the jews hammered into their flatheads. Very sad.
I really hope also they (Clyde and Darius) will wake up, and realize that they have been tricked and misled by these hook-nosed demons from hell. Darius can t see it is fake-Nazis in Ukraine, even though he knows that Zelensky is a jew, the Maidan coup was done by jewess Victory Nuland and that Merkel is a jewess too, Josef Borrel, most imortant EU commission man, a jew too etc. etc. But still Darius and Clyde follow the dumb jewish propaganda lie, that it’s Nationalsocialists aka “Nazis” guilty and behind it all, not Jews (no of course not) Haha .. unbelievable how naive people are.
ayo 1 country out of 29 you probably live in Germany. Or some other shit hole
