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 A5V is a two-stage, heavy-lift space launch vehicle comprising six Common Core Boosters (CCBs) at the first stage, including five Baikal reusable boosters; one 66,200-lb RD-0124 motor at the second stage; and the Breeze M or KVRB upper stage. Basically the A5V adds an extra booster to the Angara A5 rocket carrier to lift super-heavy payloads. The decision to develop the A5V carrier was taken in April 2015 instead of developing a new super-heavy carrier. The first launch of the Angara A5V rocket is slated for 2021. It is expected that the Angara A5V will carry a manned crew to the Moon by 2030.
