The termination of the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Short-Range Missiles (INF Treaty) allows Russia to create a ground-based version of the dagger aircraft complex, writes Military-Industrial Courier.
To this end, it is proposed to add the second stage with the 9X820 engine from the 9M723 rocket of the Iskander-M complex to the aeroballistic missile currently intended to be launched from the MiG-31 fighter-interceptor.
“Its thrust will suffice in excess – 175 kilonewtons, despite the fact that the rocket will recover up to 7500–7600 kilograms and will extend to 11 meters. As a result, at the end of the active section, she will receive the same four thousand meters per second, as when starting with the MiG-31, necessary to achieve a range of two thousand kilometers, ”the newspaper said.
The publication also states the need to develop a ground-based version of Caliber.
The INF Treaty, signed by the Soviet Union and the United States in December 1987, ended on August 2.
In February, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that a land-based version of the Caliber complex of a sea-based long-range cruise missile and a ground-based missile system would be developed during 2019-2020.
