Russia plans to adopt Bulava missile by end 2011

Russia is going to adopt new Bulava-M submarine-based ballistic missiles for service with the Navy by the end of 2011 after a series of tests, First Deputy Minister of Defence Vladimir Popovkin said addressing the international IDEX arms show in Abu Dhabi.

The Bulava is designed to be installed on nuclear-powered submarines.

In all, 14 test launches were made. Last year only two launches instead of planned four took place, but both were successful.
