Description: The solid-fuel Bulava-30 ballistic missile, R-30 Russian industrial code and SS-N-32 NATO designation, has been reported as a naval variant of Russian Topol-M road-mobile Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) or at least a new development levering its technology. Equipped with Multiple Independently targetable Reentry Vehicles (MIRVs) they will capable of destroying four to six or ten targets relying upon the number of nuclear warheads assigned to each missile. The missile's range is 8,000 kilometers and can be equipped with 10 nuclear warheads according to Russian press. It is likely that some kind of maneuverable warhead technology has been or will be procured for Bulava as it was done for Topol-M.

The Bulava-M is an improved version of the Bulava Sea-Launched Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (SLBM) featuring increased reliability and most likely increased range as well as enhanced survivability against missile defenses. The Bulava-M ballistic missile will carry multiple nuclear warheads (MIRV) as well as decoys to counter the latest missile defenses. The Russian Navy expects to deploy the new Bulava-M missile onboard the Project 955A Borey II submarines beginning in 2018.
