MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) – Nuclear-powered submarine Tula that reports to Russia’s North Fleet on Thursday effectuated a successful test launch of the Liner ballistic missile from the water area of the Barents Sea to the Kura missile testing range in Kamchatka, the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry told Itar-Tass.
“The launch was effectuated in the scheduled mode and the missile’s warheads reached the target area on time,” a ministry spokesman said.
Liner sea-based ballistic missile has the flight characteristics resembling those of the Sineva intercontinental ballistic missile.
A report at the website of the State Missile Center says the Liner is capable of delivering twelve warheads to the targets, which is two times as big as the number of warheads delivered by the Bulava missiles.
The Liner’s parameters relating to the mass and energy ratios surpass the parameters of all the existing solid-fuel strategic missiles built in Britain, China, Russia, the U.S., or France.
Its combat equipment -- the four blocks of medium power class – puts it on a par with the U.S. intercontinental ballistic missile Trident-2.
The Liner can be fitted out with smaller striking capacity warheads that exceed in number the Bulava missiles by a factor of 1.5 to 2.0.
It has a vastly improved capability for penetrating the antiballistic missile defense lines and an upgraded flight range.
