Russian missile operators brought up to speed on Iskander-M


Missile operators of Russia’s Eastern Military District will undergo a special retraining course to handle the state-of-the-art Iskander-M ballistic missile system.

During the six-month course at a test range in the southern Astrakhan region the missile system operators will be learning the ins and outs of the advanced tactical ballistic missile complex to culminate in a real-life missile launch.

It is the second unit of the Russian Missile Forces to be armed with the Iskander-M complexes, military officials said.
