MOSCOW (BNS): Russia is planning to start work on constructing prototype of a new heavy liquid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in 2014.

According to a news report by RIA Novosti, the new missile is planned to replace the Voyevoda (SS-18 Satan) ICBM, which has been in service since 1967.

"The construction of a full-size prototype of this missile will begin next year," a Defence Ministry source was quoted as saying by the Russian news agency.

Russia's current ICBM projects, both sea-launched (Bulava) and land-based (Topol-M, Yars), have been solid-fuel.
