Description: The R-500 is a high accuracy tactical ballistic missile intended to counter state-of-the-art air defense and missile defense systems developed by the United States and its allied nations. The Russian Federation conducted successfully the first test launch at the Kapustin Yar test range in the Astrakhan region of Russia on May 30, 2007. The R-500 missile test campaign is scheduled for completion in 2008 with the missile system achieving initial operational with the Russian Federation Armed Forces by 2009 equipping Iskander launch platforms.

The R-500 missile has been designed to be deployed on the Tractor-Erector-Launcher (TEL) vehicles utilized by the Iskander missile system. The R-500 missile follows a non-purely-ballistic path including violent maneuvers in the terminal phase of flight to defeat missile defenses. Besides its quasi-ballistic flight path, the missile is equipped with a heavy payload of decoys for enhanced survivability against existing and planned missile defenses.
