Russia Plans Biggest Nuclear Weapons Test in 25 Years

Military Drill Will See Launch of 16 Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles

Russia is prepping for what is the biggest weapons test since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 – possibly even the largest to ever take place, globally.

According to newspaper Izvestia, Russia is planning to launch 16 intercontinental ballistic missiles from two Borei-class nuclear-powered submarines traveling 50 meters deep in choppy waters.

Previous launches were all codenamed “Behemoth” with Behemoth-1 taking place in 1991 – it was viewed as a possible scenario of a nuclear war against the United States and was executed to confirm the possibility and safety of a quick underwater salvo, writes The Barents Observer.

The Bulava missile, known as the SS-N-32 has a reach of 10,000 kilometers.

The launch is expected to take place in the Barents Sea.
