Russia's Bulava ballistic missile will enter service when it is 98-99% efficient, Deputy Defense Minister Vladimir Popovkin said on Tuesday.
Over half of the test launches of the submarine-based missile have failed. The last test launch on October 7 was deemed successful when it hit the designated target in the country's Far East.
The next launch is scheduled for October 29, a military source revealed earlier on Tuesday.
The Bulava is capable of carrying six individually targeted nuclear warheads.
