Ten-day military exercises in Tajikistan by a Moscow-led security alliance have seen the renewed deployment of a short-range ballistic missile system recently introduced to the region.

TASS news agency cited Yaroslav Roschupkin, a spokesman for Russia’s Central Military District, as saying on November 17 that an Iskander-M complex fired rockets from the Lyaur military range, just south of Dushanbe, over a range of 130 kilometers at a dummy terrorist training camp. The target was at a location in the Harbmaidon training ground, close to the border with Afghanistan.

Roschupkin said the Iskander-M had struck its target to within a 10-meter degree of accuracy and that the test had confirmed the system’s “invisibility to detection equipment.”
