Bulava failure will delay submarine handovers

09 September 2013

The in-flight failure of the first R-30 Bulava (SS-N-32) ballistic missile to be launched from nuclear-powered submarine Alexander Nevsky is expected to delay initial operational capability (IOC) of this boat and of the Vladimir Monomach . These are the second and third examples of the Borey-class submarine that was developed to carry the new missile. Lead boat of the class is Yuri Dolgoruky , which became operational with the Russian Navy in December 2012.

According to the Russian Defence Ministry, the latest Bulava launch was conducted on 6 September 2013 while the Alexander Nevsky was operating in the White Sea.
