MOSCOW, September 28. /TASS/. Service launch of an Iskander-M missile was successfully performed by personnel from a missile unit of the Eastern Military District at a firing range in Russia’s southern Astrakhan region, spokesman for the military district Alexander Gordeyev said on Monday.

"The missile was fired to a distance of 300 kilometers at a target simulating a command centre of a maneuver enemy. The launch was successful," he said, adding that following the drills the army unit and the Iskander-M missile system would return to the base of their permanent deployment in the Siberian republic of Buryatia.

Iskander tactical ballistic missile systems are capable of hitting both small-size and large-area targets at a distance of up to 500 km to destroy missile and multiple launch rocket systems, long-range artillery guns, aircraft and helicopters at aerodromes, command posts and communications centers.

The Iskander tactical ballistic missile complex includes a launcher, a loader-transporter, a routine maintenance vehicle, a command post vehicle, an information post, an ammunition equipment set and training aids.
