(Worthy News) - Russia's Defense Ministry says it has test-launched a Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile from its most advanced nuclear-powered submarine for the first time, striking a target thousands of kilometers away.
The ministry said on October 30 that the missile was fired from an upgraded Borei-class nuclear submarine that was submerged in the White Sea near Arkhangelsk on Russia's northern coast.
It said the missile carried a dummy payload that reached a test site in Russia's Far East region of Kamchatka. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]
