New Russian «Iskander» missile complexes cannot be exported

The short-range nuclear-capable Iskander missile complexes cannot be exported under Russian federal law, according to the head of state corporation “Rostec” Sergei Chemezov.

The Iskander missile system (NATO reporting name SS-26 Stone) cannot be sold to other countries because  it is in the list of products prohibited from export.  Earlier Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir officially confirmed his country’s interest in the Russian missiles.

Iskander-M is a Russian mobile short-range ballistic missile system, which entered into service in 2006. Iskander missiles are nuclear-capable and can engage a wide range of targets, from enemy military units to underground command centers.


The Iskander is characterized by its high mobility and maneuverability, as it takes just 20 minutes to put the system in operational readiness.
