On June 2017 the missile submarine Yuri Dolgoruky, successfully test-fired an RSM-56 Bulava Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) from a submerged position in the Barents Sea, off the northern coast of Russia. The warhead impacted the designated target at the Kura practice range in Kamchatka, 3,600 miles away.
The Russian Navy successfully test-fired a Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile for a second time in two months. Another imminent test expected in the upcoming days is the last test launch of the solid propellant inter-continental ballistic missile RS-26. Both missiles are two part of the Russian nuclear triad, which also include new cruise missiles and a new bomber, to enter service in the next decade.
