Description: The Iskander-K, 9M728 industrial designation, is the newest version of the Iskander road mobile tactical ballistic missile system featuring an extended range of up to 2,000 kilometers and a circular error probable (CEP) of up to 7 meters. The new weapon seems to be targeted against NATO's ballistic missile defense (BMD) system to be deployed in Europe and therefore should be equipped with a tactical nuclear warhead. The Iskander-K was under development as of late 2011 and still classified as top secret by the Russian Federation. According to new information the Iskander-K might be an hypersonic cruise missile capable of Mach 5 at an altitude of 50 kilometers. The Iskander-K, also referred to as SSC-8, entered service with the Russian Armed Forces in February 2017. Dismissing previous reports the Iskander-K is a subsonic cruise missile with a maximum range of 2,000 to 2,300 kilometers. The maximum range might be limited to 490 kilometers carrying a conventional warhead.
