Russia's ballistic missile to enter service after clean sheet (Update 1)

16:11 26/10/2010

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.

    In North America we just do not get this kind of interesting military news. I enjoy reading it and learning about Russia's defensive strategies and the challenges getting there.
