Russia has successfully fired two of its newest intercontinental ballistic missiles from a submarine located in the White Sea to a target on the Pacific coast 6,700 kilometres.
The Bulava (SS-NX-30) submarine-launched missiles were fired from the Borey-class Yury Dolgoruky nuclear-powered submarine in the White Sea and successfully struck targets on the Kura range on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
The seaborne strategic missile system Bulava can carry at least 10 independently targetable nuclear warheads. Its effective radius is at least 8,000 kilometres.
The Dmitry Donskoy submarine carried out the first test surface launch of a Bulava missile from a point in the White Sea on September 27, 2005.
