An Iskander-M missile unit of Russia’s Eastern Military District performed a computer-simulated launch of one of Russia’s most advanced rockets during a snap drill, the 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 said.

The Iskander-M tactical missile system (also referred to as NATO’s reporting name SS-26 Stone) is considered to be among the most advanced surface-to-surface missiles available today.

The system is characterized by high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to be readied for launch.
