this time it all went well, unlike the other two failed launches not long ago

MOSCOW, March 17 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Northern Fleet’s nuclear-powered submarine Novomoskovsk fired an intercontinental ballistic missile from the Barents Sea at 15:08 Moscow time on Wednesday.

The warhead of the Sineva missile accurately hit a target at the Kura testing ground on Kamchatka, the Russian Navy commander’s aide Capitan Igor Dygalo told Itar-Tass.

A Defence Ministry official told Itar-Tass that the RSM-54 Sineva missile, which is know as Scythian in the Western classification, was launched from the sea depth.

The same test failed on February 17

Tests were conducted on one of Dolphins in 1990 with a simultaneous launch of all 16 missiles, as in real combat.
