MOSCOW, July 29. /TASS/. Servicemen from Russia’s Central Military district have live-fired Iskander-M operational-tactical missile systems, assistant to district’s commander Colonel Yaroslav Roschupkin said on Wednesday.

"After live-firing at the Totsky range, Iskander-M operators delivered a preemptive strike on tactical missile systems and other remote targets that determine the imaginary enemy’s military potential," Roschupkin said.

A brigade of the Central Military District was earlier raised on alert for a snap check. More than 500 servicemen and 50 units of military equipment took part in the drills.

Iskander-M is a version of the Iskander tactical missile system supplied to the Russian Armed Forces. It is capable of hitting targets deep inside the enemy lines. The system’s firing range is up to 500 km. The complex comprises a launcher with two missiles, a missile-transporter loader, a command post vehicle, a technical maintenance vehicle, a set of arsenal equipment, a data processing unit, as well as training facilities.
