This is coolbert:
Not since the days of the Cold War has there been such a thing.
Once more from DEBKAfile:
"Russian nuclear-capable Iskander missiles deployed in Syria"
"Russia has deployed to Syria in the last few days its most advanced tactical missile system, the Iskander-M . . . Capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, this missile has never been made available to any foreign army for operational use. The Russian missiles (NATO codenamed SS-26) have a range of 500km - up to the outskirts of Ankara and across the Mediterranean up to Cyprus. The deployment of the Iskander plus the formidable S-400 air defense missiles makes the Russian Hmeimim base in Syria the most advanced missile hub in the Middle East."
Iskander a tactical battlefield missile with prodigious capability. Nuclear capable yes, but also can deliver on target with great accuracy chemical, biological, and conventional munitions.
SYRIA DURING THAT PERIOD OF THE COLD WAR THE ONLY OTHER NATION OTHER THAN THE SOVIET UNION TO DEPLOY THE SA-5 GRIFFIN SURFACE-AIR-MISSILE. GRIFFIN REPUTED TO EVEN HAVE AN ANTI-BALLISTIC MISSILE POTENTIALITY.
