    Bulava is not based on Topol-M/Yars. A reported Bulava-2 is simply due to the Russian perchant of incremental improvement on established designs, and is NOT an indicator of any alleged shortcomings in the Bulava design. problems with Bulava in test firings is due to manufacturing defects, not design. Not really surprising given the very high performance of Bulava, and the generally run-down condition of Russian missile manufacturing following the disastrous 90s. The manufacturing base needed to be rebuilt from the ground up, and problems still exist, but there is no cause to be sounding like an eternal pessimist.
