    Problem was technology production of nozzles

    The Defense Ministry named the cause of a bad start "Bulava"

    Are you seriously that dumb?

    They paused testing after an accident to determine problems and begin next round of testing.

    I was wondering, since the middle kingdom lacks ICBMs to reach conus, would it be possible for it to borrow the bear's icbms? ie nuke the bear then the bear goes berserk and nukes everybody else.

    Russia to Test Two Bulava Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles This Autumn

    MOSCOW, June 2 (RIA Novosti) – Russia will hold two test launches of the Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile by the end of the year, including one from the Borey-class submarine, the Russian Defense Ministry said Monday.

    “There will be two launches this autumn – the first one will be held in September, from the Vladimir Monomakh submarine as part of its trials, the second [launch] is due in November,” Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said.

    The rest of the Bulava test launches are scheduled for 2015. The missiles will be launched by Northern Fleet and Pacific Fleet submarines.

    Bulava is Russia's cutting-edge intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Equipped with 10 warheads with a 9,000-kilometer range, it is even capable of withstanding nuclear attack.

    Test launches of the Bulava have been experiencing some problems. Last September during state trials of the Aleksander Nevsky nuclear-powered submarine a Bulava rocket experienced a malfunction. Following this incident Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu ordered to hold five additional launches of Bulava missiles.

    I predict the failure lands on your house, and hence is actually a success.

    Bulava missile to be launched in autumn — source

    MOSCOW, August 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The intercontinental submarine-launched ballistic missile Bulava will be launched in September or October, a source in the Russian naval headquarters familiar with the process said on Wednesday.

    The missile will be launched from Borei-class strategic missile submarines Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh, the source told ITAR-TASS.

    Vladimir Monomakh was initially planned to shoot Bulava in August or September, the lead vessel Yuriy Dolgorukiy - in November, while Alexander Nevsky was not planned to participate this year. Alexander Nevsky is the first serial Borei-class submarine and began service in 2013. Vladimir Monomakh is planned to join the fleet in late 2014.

    Alexander Nevsky and Vladimir Monomakh were earlier reported to make three test Bulava launches from the Sea of Okhotsk in the summer or autumn of 2015. For this, the submarines would follow the Northern Sea Route with 16 missiles each, said a source in the governmental military-industrial commission.

    The military planned a total of five test launches, Deputy Defense Minister Yuriy Borisov said.

    Bulava R-30 is the Russian state-of-the-art three-stage solid-fuel missile that carries up to 10 independent warheads and has a range of 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles).

    Russia extends service life of Voevoda intercontinental ballistic missiles to 27 years

    The missile aimed to equip two strategic submarines Shark and Borei has been developed since 1998.

    On September 6, 2013, Alexander Nevsky launched Bulava in the White Sea at the Kura test range in Kamchatka. The rocket left the launch container but a malfunction occurred in the second minute of flight. According to the governmental commission, the failure resulted from a mistake in nozzle material production. Bulava launches would be resumed in the autumn of 2014, Borisov said later.

    Looks liquid fuelled even though it is not... Must be some kind of smokeless propellant.

    Now that I think about it.... Not only that, but it explains the lack of smoke produced by the "missile".

    That is what a Bulava launch really looks like...

    However, this is also from a Bulava launch...

    I'm just bewildered by the lack of smoke... The launch looks like a R-29RMU launch, look at this: 

    IMHO, this was a liquid fueled rocket.
