The test missile was launched from the Barents Sea (Near Norway) from a submarine to a target on the Kamchatka Peninsula near Alaska, a distance of about 3000 miles.
The launch was from the Novomoskovsk, a Soviet era submarine named after a city in Ukraine.
The submarine was designed to carry 16 RSM-54 missiles, a liquid propellant powered ICBM with a range of about 4500 miles, with 4 MIRVed warheads. The missile test fired is an upgraded version that was rolled out in 2007.
