MOSCOW, July 27 (UPI) -- Russia successfully test fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile in the Barents Sea, officials say.

An RSM-54 Sineva missile was blasted from the Northern Fleet's nuclear-powered submarine Yekaterinburg Wednesday, RIA Novosti reported.

The missile hit an assigned target at Kamchatka's Kura test area in the Russian Far East.

The RSM-54 Sineva is a third-generation, liquid-propellant, submarine-launched ballistic missile the Russian navy adopted in July 2007, the news agency said. It has a range of up to 6m213 miles and can carry four to 10 nuclear warheads.
