Russia will put into service the missile-carrying submarine Yury Dolgoruky and the intercontinental ballistic missile Bulava after the Navy Day of July 29.

That's according to Chief of the Russian General Staff General Nikolay Makarov.

The fourth-generation 170-meter-long submarine can carry 16 Bulava ICBMs with the range of 8,000 km.

As Russia's most advanced three-stage solid fuel missile, Bulava could carry up to 10 hypersonic individually guided warheads.

The Russian Navy is expected to receive at least 10 new Borey class strategic nuclear submarines by 2020.
