    Russia will present an improved version of the Iskander-M mobile missile system after 2020.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) —  Russia's Rostec state corporation plans to unveil an upgraded Iskander-M mobile missile system after 2020, Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov told reporters Tuesday.

    "In accordance with the adopted 'Vooruzheniye' [Armament] cluster strategy, we intend to improve tactical missile systems in the next 10 years. The upgraded version of Iskander-M will be presented after 2020," Chemezov said.

    The corporation's board adopted the armament strategy last Wednesday, April 5, envisioning annual 17-percent profit increases into 2025 through the development of new products.
