Russia has successfully test-fired the Sineva submarine-launched ballistic missile from a Delta-IV class submarine, a defense ministry spokesman said.
The missile, lauched from the Yekaterinburg submarine, hit the designated target on time, the source said.
The RSM-54 Sineva (NATO codename SS-N-23 Skiff) is a third-generation liquid-propellant submarine-launched ballistic missile that entered service with the Russian Navy in July 2007. It has a maximum range of over 10,000 km and can carry four to 10 nuclear warheads, depending on the modification.
The Russian Navy has seven Delta-IV class submarines in service. They are all deployed in the Northern Fleet.
