The battle blocks of the Bulava missile successfully arrived at the Kura field in Kamchatka

The strategic nuclear submarine Alexander Nevsky has successfully carried out a single launch of the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the Russian Defense Ministry's press service and information department reports.

"The shooting was carried out from a submarine from a submerged position. The parameters of the trajectory of the Bulava ICBM have been worked out in the normal mode. According to the confirmed data of objective control, the missile warheads have successfully arrived at the Kura training ground in Kamchatka," said Major General Igor Konashenkov, an official spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense ...

This is the first Bulava missile launch from the first serial Borey-class submarine.

The previous launch of the Bulava was carried out on October 29 - then the submarine Yuri Dolgoruky fired a missile at the Kura test site in Kamchatka. For the first time, when the Bulava was launched, the Borey-class submarine had a full load of ammunition on board - 16 missiles. Prior to that, all launches of Bulava from submarines were carried out with one rocket.

Each Borei-class submarine, including Alexander Nevsky, can carry 16 Bulava missiles with multiple warheads, the missile's range depends on equipment and can reach 11 km. It is expected that the Borei armed with Bulava will form the basis of Russia's naval strategic nuclear forces until 2025-2030.

Earlier, a source at the headquarters of the Northern Fleet reported that today's launch of Bulava from submarines of the Borey class would be the last this year. "The next two launches of Bulava will be carried out in 2015 after the arrival of Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh to the Pacific Fleet," the source added.
