Russian Space Forces launched a RS-18 (UR-100NUTTH, SS-19 Stiletto) intercontinental ballistic missile from a silo launcher at Baikonur at 11:35 UTC on November 9, 2006.

"The ICBM was test-fired from a silo as part of an RS-18 service life extension program" - Alexei Kuznetsov, Space Forces spokesman .

The missile successfully landed onto the Kura test range on the Kamchatka Peninsula.

The UR-100N is a fourth-generation silo-launched liquid-propellant ICBM similar to the UR-100 but with much increased dimensions, weights, performance, and payload.
