The Iskander-M/Iskander-E is a short range ballistic missile (SRBM) designed for tactical battlefield use. The Russian military version is known as the Iskander-M and the export version is known as the Iskander-E. Created by the Design Bureau of Machine Building (KBM) in Kolomna, the Iskander-M/Iskander-E has its origins in the Oka-U project which was first started in 1984 as an upgrade of the 9K714 Oka [NATO designation SS-23 'Spider'], but was discontinued in accordance with INF Treaty requirements. Further development of the Iskander-M/Iskander-E began in the 1990s under the project name 'Tender' using the information and technology from the Oka-U design. The Iskander-E was first displayed at the MAKS-99 air show in 1999 in Zhukovskiy, near Moscow. On 3 October 2001 testing for the Iskander-E was reported completed, while testing of the domestic Iskander-M version was reported to be continuing.
The Iskander-E is a solid-fueled, single-stage SRBM with a maximum range of 280km and a warhead payload of 480kg. It adheres to MTCR restrictions that limit missiles to a range of 300km and a payload of 500kg. The domestic Iskander-M version is expected to have a longer range of approximately 400km and a larger warhead up to 700kg. The Iskander-E has a launch weight of 3,800kg and is deployed on a transporter erector launcher (TEL) vehicle that carries two missiles. The missiles can reportedly be launched within a minute of each other.
Syria, Iran, and Jordan have shown open interest in purchasing the Iskander-E.[5,6,7] KBM director Nikolay Gushchin has stated that Russia will also seek to export the Iskander-E to Algeria, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, and South Korea. The state tests are to be completed in which is planned for 2003, and following their completion the Iskander-M is expected to be deployed by the Russian military.
