Russian Nuclear Submarine Launches Test Missiles Over 3,000 Miles

NBC News shows how Russia’s Vladimir Monomakh submarine fired four Bulava missiles from underwater in the Sea of Ohkotsk, hitting targets with dummy warheads over 3,400 miles away in Russia’s north western Arkhangelsk region, according to the country’s defense ministry.

Russian submarine Vladimir Monomakh is interesting.

K-551 Vladimir Monomakh (Russian: АПЛ Владимир Мономах) is a Russian ballistic missile submarine of the fourth generation Borei class (Project 955) that became operational in 2015. It is certainly named after Vladimir II Monomakh (1053-1125), the Grand Duke of Kievan Rus'.
