MOSCOW, September 9 /TASS/. A Topol intercontinental ballistic missile has been successfully test-fired from Russia's Plesetsk launch site, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.
The ministry said that a Topol intercontinental ballistic missile was test-launched from the Plesetsk state experimental spaceport at the final stage of the command and staff exercises of the Russian Strategic Missile Troops (RVSN).
"The main aim of the launch is to confirm the basic flight and technical characteristics of the Topol intercontinental ballistic missile and test an advanced combat outfit and means of overcoming missile defense systems," the ministry’s department of information and mass communications said in a statement.
"The missile’s experimental warhead hit a hypothetical target with high precision at a testing ground on Kamchatka peninsula," the Russian Defense Ministry said.
The results of the launch will be used for raising the efficiency of an advanced group of Russian ballistic missiles, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
