MULINO PROVING GROUND /Nizhny Novgorod Region/, September 13. /TASS/. The crews of Iskander-M tactical missile systems carried out a group missile strike on a mock enemy command post and other critical objects, firing from a position of 50 kilometers away from the Mulino Proving Ground, the Russian Defense Ministry said Monday.
"The group missile strike simultaneously engaged four Iskander-M tactical missile systems. The strike was carried out by both cruise and quasi-ballistic missiles," the Ministry said.
The Iskander-M system is capable of striking targets at a distance between 50 and 500 kilometers with a margin of error of less than 10 meters. The area of destruction from a single warhead is 25,000 square meters, or about two football fields.
