Russian nuclear submarines test-fires intercontinental missile

Nuclear submarine Tula of Russia’s Northern Navy test-fired a ballistic missile Monday. “The missile was launched from the Barents Sea, targeting a range ground in the Kamchatka region of Russia,” the chairman of the press department of the Russian Navy, Igor Dygalo said.

According to the official, the submarine fired the missile from under the water surface with a view to check the battling capacity of the nation’s strategic nuclear forces.

“The head of the missile landed on the range ground according to the schedule,” Dygalo said.

Nuclear cruiser Tula is a submarine of 667BDRM class. These submarines are equipped with Sineva RSM-54 ballistic missiles.

Missile tests have become regular occurrences in the Russian armed forces in the past few years. They are viewed by Russia's political and military leadership as evidence that they are reviving the country's military might.
