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 A5 is a two-stage, heavy-lift space launch vehicle comprising five Common Core Boosters (CCBs) at the first stage, including four Baikal reusable boosters; one 66,200-lb RD-0124 motor at the second stage; and the Breeze M or KVRB upper stage. With a maximum lift-off weight of 773-ton the Angara A5 can put into low-Earth orbit payloads of up to 24,500 kg. Besides, the Breeze M or KVRB can lift payloads of up to 7,300 kg (or 5,400 kg) to a geo-transfer orbit at 5,500 km of altitude and 25-degree of inclination or place directly payloads of up to 4,500 kg (or 2,900 kg) into geostationary orbit. The Breeze M upper stage has a diameter of 4.35 meters and 11.6 or 15.25 meters in length. The Breeze M is also available in a larger version with 5.1 meters diameter and16.37 meters in length. The KVRB has a diameter of 5.1 meters and 19.65 meters in length. The first launch was carried out in December 2014 and the second is scheduled for 2019. Series production of the Angara rocket are expected to start in 2023.
