The Kalashnikova Show: Russia’s Military Secrets with Anna Knishenko

Iskander tactical system. NATO's headache | The Kalashnikova Show. Episode 10

Iskander is a Russian tactical missile system capable of high-precision strikes at a range of 500km. Iskander missiles are conventional, but have characteristics that make them comparable to nuclear weapons. The Iskander-M can retarget in-flight and destroy other missile systems, air defences, airfields, and military bases. This makes it an effective deterrent, as well as a ‘headache’ for NATO.
