Russian Submarine Missile Test successfully Fired From Arctic

A Russian submarine test-fired a missile from under water in the Arctic and reportedly hit all of its “designated targets,” according to the country’s news agency TASS.

The Russian Northern Fleet’s submarine missile cruiser Yuri Dolgoruky has successfully test-fired an “Bulava” intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from the Barents Sea, Russian Defense Ministry said Monday.

“The Project 955 ‘Borey’-class strategic missile submarine Yuri Dolgoruky has successfully launched the ‘Bulava’ intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from the designated area in the Barents Sea area towards the Kura test range in Kamchatka,” the ministry said in a statement.

The launch was made from underwater position in accordance with the combat training plan, it added.

According to the confirmed data, the ICBM’s warheads completed the full cycle of the flight program and successfully hit designated targets, the ministry said.

The Yuri Dolgoruky submarine is the lead vessel of Project 955 or Borey, a class of nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine produced by Russia and operated by the Russian Navy.

Currently, Russia has nine modern strategic missile submarines and it aims to increase the number to 13, including seven “Borey”-class submarines equipped with “Bulava” missiles.

  1. Do we want to go head to head with Russia over some unsupported claims that Syria gases its people.
    The “DEEP STATE” wants a war to keep control over US and if Trump falls for this everyone suffers. Nothing in the fake news is true and the globalists will do anything to hold power. People get a brain.
