New Russian missile successfully tested
Earlier, tests of the rocket, which has been hailed as a key future component of Russia's nuclear arsenal, ended in failure, raising questions about the efficiency of the missile.
According to a Russian navy spokesman, Igor Dygalo, this time the test passed without complications.
“At noon today the atomic submarine strategic-purpose cruiser Dmitry Donskoy under the command of Captain Romanov carried out a successful launch of the up-to-date Bulava ballistic missile. The warhead of the intercontinental submarine-based Bulava missile reached its target at the scheduled time. The launch was carried out from underwater within a programme to test the design and flight of the system. All trajectories of the launch were a complete success,” Igor Dygalo commented.
