The Russian Navy currently operates 28 missiles R-29RM that carry, together, 112 nuclear ogives. The Russians are modernizing missiles R-29RM and converting them it standard R-29RMU Sineva, that will serve of nucleus of the force of attack of the Strategical Fleet until the introduction of the new missiles Bulava, naval version of already cited Topol-M missile, and beyond, with forecast of will remain in operation up to 2030. The Sineva, as already affirmed, is closing the cited gap originated for the withdrawal of active service of the missiles heavy R-39. With capacity to carry up to ten VMRI with unitria power of 100 kt and to more than attack targets the 11,500 kilometers of distance, the inactive R-29RMU perfectly obtain to substitute the R-39. The precision of the ogives, even so the majority of cites it to the sources as next to 400 meters, some arrive the referiz it as inferior the 100 meters thanks to the possibility to guide the missile by means of system GLONASS. With such precision, the projectile can act in such a way in against-force missions as against-value. The Russians operate 64 Sineva missiles currently. However, it is little probable that these are operating with the maximum load capacity, that is of ten ogives.
The program of the new Bulava missiles, with introduction in service planned for 2009, has suffered considerable delays, mainly had the successive imperfections in the program of tests. Initially it was planned to operacionalizar them on board the new submarines of the Borei classroom, of which the first unit must soon start the tests in the sea. However, according to some specialists, if the program of the Bulava to continue suffering to delays and the submarine from the classroom Borei, Yuri Dolgoruky, will be ready to be integrated to the squadron, this can temporarily be equipped with the Sineva missiles until the Bulava is ready.
