    Russia will carry out a series of new test launches of sea-based Bulava ballistic missile in October-November 2015, a source in Navy Main Headquarters said on Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The first single-missile launch will be carried out from the Vladimir Monomakh strategic submarine, while the second will be a two-missile salvo from the Alexander Nevsky and the Vladimir Monomakh subs, the source told RIA Novosti on condition of anonymity.

    Both vessels are the Borei-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines in service with the Russian navy.

    "The launches are scheduled for October-November," the source said.
