Iskander rocket strike


"Iskander", "Tochki" and "Elbrus" - Armenia threatens Turkey with the instant destruction of half of the army

Turkey, which used F-16 fighters against the Armenian military, received a final warning from Armenia.

The Ministry of Defense of Armenia sent a tough warning to Turkey about its readiness to inflict an instant strike with tactical missile weapons, in particular, we are talking about the Iskander OTRK, on ​​the territory of a neighboring state if Turkey continues to use F-16 fighters to strike at the territory of Armenia or the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

“The military leadership has repeatedly stated that if the sword of Damocles in the form of Turkish F-16s hangs over the people of Nagorno-Karabakh, all measures will be taken, including the Iskander. That is, the Armed Forces of Armenia will have to use their entire arsenal to ensure security ", - stated Armenian Ambassador to Russia Vardan Toganyan.

Nevertheless, the Iskander complexes are far from the only tactical weapons in the possession of the Armenian army, in particular, it is known that in addition to modern complexes, Armenia also possesses Soviet weapons - the Tochka-U OTRK and Elbrus OTRK , which is enough for Turkey to suffer very serious losses - the largest Turkish air force bases fall under the attack of tactical missile systems.

Taking into account the fact that Turkey does not have air defense / missile defense systems capable of combating tactical missiles, this became a very weighty argument for Ankara.
