Unusual Russian missile maneuver surprised Western users


Western social media users were surprised by the recent exercises that took place in Russia. They noticed that the Russian missiles fired from the Iskander-M OTRK changed their flight trajectory and made an unusual maneuver.


It should be noted that on August 5, 2020, in the Astrakhan region at the Kapustin Yar training ground, during a special operational training session, the military personnel of the Air Defense Forces launched a massive missile strike by the Iskander missile system against the targets of the simulated enemy with the fire support of the Tornado-S MLRS of colleagues from the Southern Military District. The video from these exercises was posted on the Web and it was it that attracted the attention of the public from Western countries.

Shown is the simultaneous launch of two Iskander-M tactical ballistic missiles. I noticed that the projectile changed its trajectory incredibly (having made a maneuver of almost 90 degrees)

- wrote the user kimo dial, providing a screenshot and video to his post on his Twitter account.


His readers commented on the post.

The missile from the Iskander insanely maneuvers, demonstrating overcoming the missile defense system

- drew attention to Plutonium General

This is not Iskander. This is a guided munition MLRS "Smerch"

- considers the user SwankyStas.

Nothing new was demonstrated here, similar was shown more than a year ago

- says Hans Schmulke.

Curious when 9M723 will be used as an air defense? All guided high-precision percussion systems provide interception capability if programmed

- Karl Pfeffer (Mīrzā) suggested absurdly enough.

Interesting maneuvering, this is the first such scene I have seen

- noted Bᴇɴ A отметил.

Not 90 degrees at all, shooting perspective can be misleading!

- sure the user Dr.Strangelove2.0

This is common knowledge and a simple reading of Wikipedia might provide you with this information

- Vincent de Bruijn summed up, pointing to the owner of the post with a link to the Iskander OTRK in the Internet library.

    However, the last tilt launch looks more like a MLRS than an Iskander.

    "I noticed that the projectile changed its trajectory incredibly (having made a maneuver of almost 90 degrees)" - maybe it just messed up? And on the fig to post all this nonsense from Twitter?

      I answer you ... That - what you call a projectile - a rocket with intensive maneuvering, capable of performing such maneuvers ... And this means that there will never be anything to intercept it ...

        I do not call anything, I copied from an article by an unknown author from the Topkor resource (see above) about the alleged tweets of some idiots. However, most likely not existing in nature, in Olgino a whole basement sprinkles such fake articles.

        And from whom does it maneuver at the moment of launch? Really from your own missile defense?

      In case of unforeseen pirouettes, any such piece of iron self-destructs.

    Well, don't believe after that that this Iskander ammunition is not the same as the Dagger laughing Only it is clear that with the ground launch.

    The 9M729 missile is capable of performing intensive maneuvers ... By no means is it possible, even in a short period of time, to take it for auto-tracking with radar nicknames ... and even more so to try to intercept something ... number and on surface mobile targets ... Can also carry tactical nuclear warheads ...

      The missile must maneuver at the end of its trajectory, not at the start.

    1. As far as I understand, this is a missile not from Iskander, but from Smerch.
    2. The meaning of such a maneuver is not clear.
    3. Maneuvering, as I understand it, should take place in the aeroballistic passive flight phase, and not during the acceleration phase.

    To me personally, this is more reminiscent of a malfunction of the ammunition from the "Smerch".

    The Ukrainian military launched their missiles about six months ago and one of their missiles also began to write incomprehensible spirals in the air, so on the Military Review website people had fun for a week and made the most fantastic assumptions.

      It's just that the rockets are old. By the way, not the first time.

    Friends, carefully watch the video, both missiles soar upward synchronously, otherwise I look, they write here that the missile has a malfunction, as if they do not see that the second is making the same maneuver. And yes, the editing at the end of the video is misleading, the only thing that gives reason to believe that these are Iskander missiles, only that there are only two of them and no other trains are visible (MLRS made several launches). As for me, this is a deliberate action to check the maneuverability of the OTRK rocket, because at the final stage of the rocket's flight it will be problematic to photograph the rocket's maneuvers because of its speed.

    Iskander has a disposable overload of 36. This is comparable to anti-aircraft missiles. A person cannot stand more than 9.

    Many foreign comments are frankly amusing. The fact that missiles can also perform anti-aircraft maneuvers is news to them. In addition, next to reports about the tests of all kinds of Hets, Iskander's maneuvers look like outright trolling)))

    By the way, everything in the comments is correct.
    This is the Tornado, seen on the trail.
    And the rocket left its trajectory, a breakdown, because it did not begin to maneuver (they wrote that some of the Tornado's rockets can only at the finish line), but simply went up.

    Peremoga, damn it ...
