As RT notes, previous tests of the weapon were conducted solo or in barrages of two on two occasions.

Firing missiles in a barrage is more challenging for the crew and ship, but reduces the time the submarine stays close to the surface exposed to detection and possible attack.

Russia currently has three Borei-class nuclear submarines in active service and a fourth upgraded ship – the Knyaz Vladimir – undergoing trial. Four more are being built. The Yuri Dolgoruky is the Project 955 Borey-class lead vessel. The submarine is armed with a set of Bulava sea-launched intercontinental ballistic missiles and also with torpedoes. The sub can be armed with cruise missiles. It has a full displacement of 24,000 tonnes, is about 160 meters long and 13 meters wide.

The R-30 Bulava is a solid-propellant ballistic missile developed specially for Project 955 submarines. Each can deliver 10 nuclear warheads of 150 kilotonnes each to a distance of 10,000 kilometers.
