Russia successfully launched its Bulava missile from the brand new fourth-generation Yuri Dolgoruky nuclear sub deployed in the White Sea on June 28. The Bulava is a submarine-launched ballistic missile able to carry up to 10 hypersonic, individually guided, maneuverable warheads with a low trajectory.
The 15th launch succeeded - the warheads hit the Kura test ground in Far Eastern Kamchatka, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov reports
"For the first time the test launch has been carried out from a shaft missile, the Yuri Dolgoruky sub, whose crew showed great skill and professionalism."
