MOSCOW (PTI): An RS-12M Topol intercontinental ballistic missile test fired from the Kapustin Yar training range near Volgograd has successfully hit the target at the Sary-Shagan training range in Kazakhstan, Russian Strategic Rocket Forces spokesman Col Vadim Koval told Itar-Tass.

"The test launch aimed to confirm the stability of main characteristics of the missile class in the period of extended service life and to test measuring systems and payload of intercontinental ballistic missiles," he said.

The test launch mission on Sunday was fully accomplished, Koval said.

That was the second test launch of an RS-12M Topol missile in 2010.

The first test launch was done from the Plesetsk spaceport to the Kura training range in Kamchatka on October 28, he said.
