The department noted that during the preparation and conduct of salvo rocket firing, the cruiser crew “showed high professionalism and maritime training.”
The strategic missile submarine Vladimir Monomakh is a fourth generation nuclear submarine. It was launched in December 2012.
In mid-November 2015, her crew fired two Bulava ballistic missiles from the White Sea at the Kura training ground in Kamchatka from a submerged position. The first Bulava was launched from it in September 2014.
