Russia tests two intercontinental missiles

Sineva missiles are capable of carrying up to 10 nuclear warheads.

Moscow: Russia has conducted a successful test of two submarine-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles, a defence ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency.

The two Sineva (NATO identification: SS-N-23) missiles were launched by the nuclear submarine Tula from the Barents Sea towards the Kura test range on the Kamchatka peninsula in the Russian Far East.

"The warheads hit their targets at the expected time," said the spokesman.
Sineva missiles are capable of carrying up to 10 nuclear warheads, according to the website GlobalSecurity.org, and were put into service by the Russian military in 2007.
