The reason for the article was the news that Russia has significantly increased the supply of missiles for Iskander-M OTRK. The author notes that the Russian armed forces have significant stocks of missiles for the Iskander-M system. Also, most of this arsenal is intended to counter NATO in the event of an escalation of hostilities.

The Iskander was created, recalls the publication, was based on the Soviet OTR-23 Oka system. With the exception of China and the DPRK, this missile system has no analogues in terms of its characteristics.

Swedish analysts at Svenska Dagbladet stress that it provides “a completely new military capability.” The missile’s trajectory is not completely ballistic, it can maneuver and reach very high speeds, of the order of 2-3 km/s [5,8-8,7 Маха]. To shoot down a missile at such speeds, it is necessary to have a very advanced air defense system. Also, the missile must be very close to the target.
