The Russian Navy's latest nuclear-powered submarine, Knyaz Vladimir, has successfully launched a ballistic missile from the seabed, traveling from the White Sea to Kamchatka.
A video released by the Russian Defense Ministry on October 30 shows the scene of the Knyaz Vladimir submarine firing an RSM-56 Bulava ballistic missile from a sinking position. Originating from the White Sea, the rocket struck a target on the Kamchatka Peninsula, in the Russian Far East.

Joining the Russian Navy in 2017, Knyaz Vladimir is the newest member of the upgraded Borei-class submarine fleet. The ship is currently undergoing sea trials.
In August, another Borei-class submarine Yuri Dolgorukiy successfully launched a Bulava rocket.
