“According to updated reports, the Alexander Nevsky is due to test-launch Bulava in a time interval between 12.00 and 3pm Moscow time (9am-12.00 GMT) on November 30. The test-launch will be made from the Barents Sea at the Kura firing range on the Kamchatka Peninsula from a submerged position,” the military source said.
Earlier it was reported that the Alexander Nevsky is to fire the only missile that will be on board. In October, the Yuri Dolgoruky submarine carried out the launch with a full load of Bulava missiles on board.
In early November, Russia’s Defense Ministry rejected media reports that the test launch of Bulava planned until year-end has been postponed. The ministry’s official spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said the missile will be launched from the submarine until the end of this year. The spokesman added that in line with the plan for 2015, two launches of sea-based Bulava are to be conducted.
