MOSCOW (BNS): The latest test launches of Bulava ballistic missile are postponed due to raging wildfires in the central regions of Russia, a media report said.

The tests which were scheduled to be conducted from August 9th to 14th are delayed for at least two weeks.

The missile has undergone a total of 12 test-launches so far, out of which seven have resulted in failure, the report said.

The missile, being developed to form the core of Russia’s nuclear triad, carries up to 10 multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle (MIRV) warheads.

Designed for deployment on Borey class nuclear-powered submarines, the three-stage solid-propellant ballistic missile has a range of over 8000 kilometers.
