OK, I've seen this designation as well - 3M30 for Bulava-30. So far www.fas.org uses 3M14. Why, while they are from Club/Club-M series? Dunno. Here these tiny numbers can cause a big problems, so I'd better use internet-spreaded ones.

That's is Russian TV news feed us with so far - this channel (RTR-Vesti) can be think of as BBC World analog)))
Text at the bottom of the screen says: "Bulava Success"
Editor needs a spare brain - he or she was just lazy to google for the pic. But, you must confirm, that Trident launch is much more spectacular on this photo, so viewers will like it)

The SS-NX-30 designation refers to the 3M14 Kalibr land-attack cruise missile. I don't think Bulava has received a Western designation yet, or at least it has not been published.

It was downloaded from one of closed-group Russian torrents. It was never aired to my knowledge.

Correct! SS-NX-30A is the 3M14, while SS-NX-30B is the export 3M14E. The designators I have for Bulava are 3M30 and D-19M.

Norwegians were seeing some strange spirals in the twilight sky of the northern winter today. Turns out they were the contrails of a failed Bulava test, according to a Norwegian newspaper.

Claims that Russian officials have confirmed a failed missile launch (they were training in the area):

This doesn't look good for the Russian strategic missile programs.
