    I swear they launch one every weekend... Not like that is a bad thing!

    “Bulava” to launch at the Okhotsk Sea for the first time in September


    The next launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile “Bulava” which is scheduled for the end of September, will be made for the first time fromthe Sea of Okhotsk on the ground “Chizh” in the Arkhangelsk region, the Interfax-Military News Agency informed, citing a source in the General Staff of the Navy
    “Ballistic missile submarine K-550 “Alexander Nevsky” will perform his third launch of ” Bulava” in the last days of September,” the source said.

    Russian nuclear sub to launch two Bulava missiles in November — source

    The missiles will be launched from a submerged position from the Barents Sea towards the Kura test site in the Kamchatka Peninsula

    MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Russia’s Vladimir Monomakh Borei class nuclear-powered submarine will carry out a salvo launch of two Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles, a source at the General Staff has told TASS.

    "According to the existing plans, the second serially-built Borei sub, the Vladimir Monomakh, will carry out a salvo launch of two Bulava missiles in November this year. The missiles will be launched from a submerged position from the Barents Sea towards the Kura test site in the Kamchatka Peninsula," the source said.

    Only two missiles will be on board the submarine at the moment.

    "At the moment of the previous Bulava launch from The Yuri Dolgoruky the submarine carried the full set of sixteen missiles. The Vladimir Monomakh will not," the official said.

    The Bulava missiles’ twin launch will be the last test of the new submarine before it enters duty as part of the combat-ready naval force.

    "If the launches are successful, if the submarine’s equipment performs well even though missiles may have hypothetical problems in flight, the submarine will go operational. This may happen in December," the source said, adding that no more launches of Bulava were on this year’s timetable.

    The Vladimir Monomakh is a third strategic nuclear-powered submarine of project 955 Borei. It was expected that the Vladimir Monomakh would make a voyage to the Pacific Fleet base in the Kamchatka Peninsula alongside its twin, The Aleksandr Nevsky. In the end only one submarine left for its destination. It is expected to be there in the second half of this month. Its first combat duty mission is due to begin in October.

    artjomh, in case satellite guidance is not available to a Bulava, Topol, Trident or any other ICBM/SLBM, can they still home in on their target?

    Of course. Ballistic missiles primarily use inertial navigation with astrocorrection. Satellites are backup.

    artjomh, I had 2 questions about the Bulava:

    1. Why does the first 2 stage uses solid fuel and the third stage liquid fuel? In other words, why not have solid fuel for the third stage as well?

    2. The CEP of the Bulava is stated to be 350m. Isn't that a bit too high?

    Thank You

    Don't listen to stupid people, jhelb. Bulava has 3 solid-fuel stages.

    Bulava has a smallest trow weight then other SLBM. Only about 1150 kg. Comparing Sineva has 2800 kg similary Trident II. Triden I has about 1500 kg. M-51 has about 2000 kg ?. This missile can carry more heavier warhead and decoy, anti ABM systems.

    the final stage for incertion of individual multiple reentry warheads is liquid fueled cince it needs multiple fireings.

    Bulava is made and designed just to evade western abm shields.

    Not necessarily.

    R-36M had a solid-fuel warhead bus. Same with RSD-10. You are not absolutely required to have a liquid-fuelled PBV on a MIRV'd missile.

    not to derail but pioneer was more of a medium range missile- it didnt reach orbit.

    Then ? There are no Ballistic missile doing a "true orbit" except FOBS.

    Plus.. Apogee of Pioneer is 1375 Km above the earth.

    If the Bulava is launched against a country can the missile be aborted/destroyed in flight by the Russian Navy ? Maybe because the Navy feels that by launching the missile itself they have put the point across & do not actually have to hit the target in an enemy country. Thanks.

    Remote self-destruct mechanisms are installed often during test flights, but are almost never present on operational missiles. For obvious reasons.

    Without satellite navigation the precision will be atrociuous ,it could aim at New york city and end hitting Florida. Inertial navigation is far from enough.You need satellite navigation for an acceptable precision for intercontinental nuclear missiles. Remeber that Bulava do not flight in a straight line ,because it does zig zag,left and right moves and have multiple reentry warheads the precision is in the couple of hundred meters. But because it have heavy nuclear warhead it will not matter.. it will wipe anything withing 10km radius instantly PER warhead.. and third degree burns up to 30km.
    So if you have 6 warheads ,then 10km x 6 warheads spread from the center = 60km total wipe of any country.  and with up to 6 x 30km third degree burns and radiation up to 180km from the impact zone. Nothing small indeed. one bulava could cover completely a territory of the size of Crimea if what a flat terrain with at least third degree burns and radiation on people. and one Borei submarine with x 16 bulavas if hit the right places have enough power to stop even the US navy and sink all its aircraft carriers and its escorts. with good intelligence of its positions and seriously damage them beyond repair and vaporize its crew.. really scary power. Shocked    Cool


    This is why is laughable the Claims of IRAN of their missiles that can hit Israel. They don't have
    navigational system of satellites like Russia or USA to guide with any precision their missiles. Their missiles could have the range to reach israel but the wind and air will move the missile beyond its trajectory and the missile will not have a way to check if needs corrections.

    Neither IRan or Pakistan have any chance to hit anything beyond 2,000km with any acceptable precision. If launch missiles at israel it could end in Jordan or in the sea. CHina have an incomplete nav system but with Russia Glonnass assistance they can get the same Russian preicision that is world class. India i don't think have any nav sat..so with Russia help it can also get the precision they need. Europe have a navigation system but is incomplete too.. they need American GPS help.

    There are reports to the effect that the Proekt 955 submarine Vladimir Monomakh will conduct a salvo launch of two Bulava missiles in the next few days (before November 16th).
