Russia Conducts SS-19 ICBM Test

Russia yesterday conducted a successful test of its SS-19 ICBM to determine if the missile’s service life can be extended, the Associated Press reported (see GSN, June 29).

The test was conducted from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and the missile hit a target in the Kamchatka Peninsula, according to AP. It was the fifth out of 10 launches planned this year by the Strategic Missile Forces.

The SS-19 has been in service for 27 years, AP reported (Associated Press/Sydney Morning Herald, Aug. 12).
