MOSCOW, August 19. /TASS/. A ballistic missile Iskander has been successfully launched during an exercise in the Jewish Autonomous Area in the Far East to hit a target 300 kilometers away, the Eastern Military District’s spokesman, Aleksandr Gordeyev, has told the media.
"The launch was carried out from a training site in the Jewish Autonomous area. The missile hit a target at a proving ground in the Amur region 300 kilometers away," Gordeyev said.
The missile destroyed several military infrastructure facilities of a hypothetical enemy, including a command center. Mechanized infantry units then went on the offensive.
More than 400 officers and men and 100 pieces of military equipment from a missile unit of the Eastern Military District are involved in the exercise.
