Description

Iskander Missile SS-26 Stone is a short range tactical missile system developed and produced in Russia. The system replaces the Oka SS-23 SPIDER which had been terminated under the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. Development of the system was undertaken by the Kolomna Engineering Design Bureau development during the 1990s under the project name "Tender". The Iskander SS-25 Stone theatre missile system is designed to destroy enemy weapons, command posts, communications nodes, tactical aircraft parked on airfields, air and missile defence installations and other critical targets in operational depth round the clock and in any season when countered by heavy regular and precision-guided munitions, weapons of mass destruction, as well as anti-missile defence and EW assets. All Iskander vehicles feature cross-country wheeled chassis making them very mobile. The missile is solid-fuelled, single-staged with continuous guidance along the whole trajectory. It features a non-separable warhead with a self-contained INS coupled with an optical homing head. The warhead can house a cluster-bomb, HE-fragmentation or penetration charge.

 
Variants
- Iskander-M: Range 400 km with a potential for extension to INF Treaty violating 500 km.
- Iskander-E: export version, range: 280 km.
- Iskander-K: new version, year 2007, with a new cruise missile R-500, range : 280 km max.
 
Technical Data

Launcher vehicle

The Iskander system is combined of six types of vehicles. The Transporter-Erector-Launcher (TEL) is based on the new BAZ6909 eight wheeled truck chassis. Fully loaded with two missiles, a TEL weighs 40 tons. The transporter loader also carries two missile reloads. The mission preparation station is equipped to process intelligence data, converting it to target data fed to the missile's navigation system. Command and staff vehicle, maintenance and life support vehicles complete the Iskander's unit. The TELs will remain in concealed position throughout the mission preparation, and require only a brief exposure to an open area to erect and fire one or two missiles. After launching, the vehicle immediately leaves the area seeking the safety of another concealed area.

Missile
The SS-25 Stone Iskander missile system is equipped with a solid-propellant single-stage guided missile 9M723K1 controlled throughout the entire flight path and provided with a non-separable warhead. The missile is designed for mobile, autonomous operation and is capable of striking point and area targets at ranges of 50 – 280 km. The missile can carry conventional warheads, cluster bombs splinter munitions and allows for precision-strike operations. The target accuracy is 5-7 meter coupled with optical homing head and 30-70 m in autonomous application. A Thermobaric warhead is also believed to be part of the missile's warhead options. An unconventional warhead could also be an option, including a tactical nuclear warhead.
Truck
The Iskander missile is mounted to the MAZ-543 truck, the 9P78E is the self-propelled launcher and the 9T250E is the transporter-loader vehicle. The 9T250E, is also used as command post, launch data preparation post, maintenance and support vehicle. The 9M72-Missile SS-26 Stone is a powerful, solid fuel propelled short-range surface-to-surface missile, and can be fired quite fast in less than 8 minutes after warning. The Iskander-M is mounted to the truck MZKT-7930.
Accessories
The missile is difficult to track with radar systems because it does have a very low flight curve with the apogee at about 50 km. The speed of the missile is about 2.6 km/s. Russia does export Iskander missiles as Iskander-E with a lower range and some other limited capabilities.
