On October 28, 2015, the Strategic Rocket Forces successfully launched a RS-24 Yars missile from a silo at the Plesetsk test range. The launch took place at 14:30 MSK (11:30 UTC). According to the official statement, the goal of the test was "to confirm reliability of the series of missiles produced at the Votkinsk plant." The missile carried multiple warheads, which are said to have successfully reached their targets at the Kura test range in Kamchatka.

This appears to be the second test of the silo-based RS-24 Yars. The first one took place in December 2013. The road-mobile Yars was last tested in December 2014.
