Russia’s nuclear-powered Yuri Dolgoruky submarine has successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile in the Barents Sea in the Arctic, according to state news agency Itar-Tass.
The nuclear submarine Yuri Dolgoruky launched a Bulava missile in northwest Russia, finding a target on the other side of the country, in a training course in Kamchatka Monday. The hit marked a rare success and a sign of further progress, as the Bulava missile project has had a troubled first decade since its start in 2004. The last launch took place in September, when the second of two rounds of missiles did not complete the full launch cycle, self-detonating before hitting the target.
