MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. The Russian Strategic Missile Forces have successfully test-fired a Topol intercontinental ballistic missile from the Plesetsk spaceport in north Russia at a practice range in Kamchatka in the Far East, the Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.
"This launch aimed to confirm the extended service life of operating intercontinental ballistic missiles of this type," the Defense Ministry said in a statement obtained by TASS.
"The missile’s warhead hit the notional target with the required accuracy at the practice range on Kamchatka Peninsula," the statement said.
The launch proved the missile system’s readiness to accomplish combat assignments during the period of its extended service life, the Defense Ministry said. The basic part of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces’ mobile grouping is armed with Topol ICBMs, the Defense Ministry said.
