Russia successfully tested Iskander Mobile short-range ballistic missile

Russia's Iskander rocket, named 9K720 is one of the mobile short-range ballistic missiles, which was first produced by the Defense Ministry of USSR in 1988. 

The 9K720 Iskander (NATO reporting name SS-26 Stone) is a mobile short-range ballistic missile system produced and deployed by the Russian Federation. 

The missile systems are to replace the obsolete OTR-21 Tochka systems, still in use by the Russian armed forces, by 2020.

The collapse of the USSR in 1991 did not affect the production of the short-range missile. 

The Iskander has several different conventional warheads, including fuel air explosive, high explosive-fragmentation and electromagnetic device. 

On 13 February, Russian Rocket Mobilization Centre again successfully tested Iskander missile in order to scrutinize its technological challenges.

Among Russia's ballistic missiles, Iskander is a missile making European countries and the United States being afraid of it.
