Previously due to the difficult financial situation the completion of the creation bzhrk were postponed to a period later than 2020.

Development bzhrk was conducted in the Soviet Union since 1969 and was completed only to the disintegration of the country — 1987. In 2005, the commander of the strategic missile forces, Colonel-General Nikolay Solovtsov stated that all 12 missile trains, carrying 36 launchers, removed from combat duty.
