Dmitry Donskoy, the submarine that is used as a test bed for the Bulava missile, is out to sea to conduct a test launch of the missile, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta. This would be the first test launch after what appears to be a series of unsuccessful or partially successful flight tests of the missile (the report mentions that there have been seven Bulava launches from Dmitry Donskoy so far). A review of the program that was conducted earlier this year concluded that the program should be continued despite the setbacks.
