Chinese M20 no competitor to Iskander – expert’s guest is IA REGNUM military observer, chief editor of New defense order. Strategies magazine Leonid Nersisyan.

- At the Airshow China 2016 exhibition China will present new operative military missile system M20. It is called Chinese “Iskander”. Can M20 be really considered analogue to Iskander M. Which is their difference?

- It is quite difficult question taking into consideration the small information about “Chinese” products. According to official information, it is really very close to Iskander. But in reality we caanot speak unequivocally about Chinese technology. The information in exchibition guide may have nothing in common with reality. Besides the quality of the product may also raise doubts. It is not accidental that Chinese military engineering has no demand in international marke despite low prices.

- In Azerbaijanthey are speaking about interest toward Chinese M20 missile system. Can I be a counterbalance to Iskander?


- As it has become clear this missile is of “suspicious” production. If Azerbaijan has necessary sum more probably Chinese will sell them this system. Moreover, they will allow them to assemble in Baku and give Azerbaijani name. But in reality it does not solve the issue as Armenia has restricting weaponry. In any case I have serious doubts that Chinese M20 is real competitor to Iskander. Besides, as of the moment Baku does not have enough sum like it had before so their interests would hardly become a reality.
