Description: The Angara is a family of space launch vehicles being built on the basis of a Common Core Booster (CCB) or Common Rocket Module (CRM) using the RD-191 reusable liquid fuel engine. The program was launched in 1995 and its main purpose is to ensure space access for the Russian Ministry of Defense for several decades from Plesetsk launch site. The Angara family comprises small-, medium- and heavy-lift space vehicles which can be launched from the same pad in Plesetsk. Its key component of the CCB/CRM is the environment-friendly liquid oxygen (LOX) kerosene RD-191 engine. The Angara family can put payloads into low-Earth orbit weighing from 2,000 to 24,500 kg, or up to 4,500 kg into geosynchronous orbit. The first Angara space launch system is expected to lift-off after 2010.

The Angara 1.2, now Aangara 1.2PP, is a small-lift space launch vehicle comprising a single Common Rocket Module (CRM) and the Rockot upper stage. This launch vehicle has been designed to put payloads of up to 3,700 kg into low-Earth orbit at altitudes of 200 kilometers and 63-degree of inclination with a maximum lift-off mass of 171 tons. The Rockot upper stage is 2.5 x 2.62 meters in diameter and 6.74 meters in length or alternatively 3.7 meters in diameter and 9.83 meters in length. The Angara 1.2PP is the slightly longer and heavier than the Angara 1.1 space launch vehicle. The first launch was carried on July 9, 2014, from Plesetsk.
