MOSCOW - Russia successfully test-fired a large long-range missile on Friday whose future as a mainstay of its nuclear arsenal has been clouded by past failures.

The military said the 12-meter (40-foot) long, multiple-warhead Bulava missile -- Russian for 'Mace' -- was fired from the atomic-powered submarine Yuri Dolgoruky in the White Sea in northwestern Russia.

Its warheads hit the target area on the Kamchatka peninsula some 6,000 km (3,700 miles) to the east, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.

"The flight went according to plan and the warheads reached the testing ground at the appropriate time," he said on state-run Rossiya 24 television.
