    Honestly a lot of this chatter is absurd. If the US felt just one Bulava out of the ENTIRE FLEET would get through successfully and obliterate 10 US cites that is pretty much enough to not **uk with Russia, or any country with the capability to wipe out 10 of your major cities.Heck even Kim Jong Un *maybe* being able hit Guam and maybe barely reach the west coast had the Orange dotard ***tting his pants.

    This was the first four-missile salvo launch for Bulava (there were three two-missile salvos in the past). These launches became 29 to 32 in the history of Bulava tests. Previous launch took place in June 2017 - it was a single launch from Yuri Dolgorukiy.

    But, I am sure they will find another favorite target to bark at in the future.
    Some things (and people) never change...

    But that is what dogs do...

    The dog thinks it is helping, and it is the first time it alerts to a problem, but when it keeps on doing it even after you shot the burglar, it just gets annoying.

    At the end of the day it is good that they bark to alert to trouble so you forgive a few mistakes, but as you point out... if it just continues to bark... put it down and get a better trained dog...

    Speaking of which I see the UK has had a meeting about that tower block that burned and killed 72 people... they haven't actually made any decisions yet... just a meeting... over 100 of those sorts of buildings in London BTW... no dogs barking there though.

    Guess it has to be a Russian problem and there will be plenty of targets... western media seem so adept at finding them and even make them up when they can't find them... shame they miss similar issues in the west...

    If the US felt just one Bulava out of the ENTIRE FLEET would get through successfully and obliterate 10 US cites that is pretty much enough to not **uk with Russia, or any country with the capability to wipe out 10 of your major cities.

    But that is the problem, there are endless lines of western experts ready to say 75% of Russian weapons probably wont even work and those that do will be shot down by the US ABM system... the fact that they are dead wrong wont be apparent until they are actually dead and still wrong... but by then it is too late to be cautious...

    This is really fast ripple fire. As if they are firing Grad rockets from an MLRS.

    I timed the interval between first and 4th missile.

    At this fantastic rate of fire, it will take the Borei submarine less than 90 seconds to fire all 16 missiles.

    Absolutely amazing.

    I mean, scary but also, hauntingly beautiful.
