Description: The Strela is a three-stage light space launch vehicle based on the RS-18/SS-19 Stiletto intercontinental ballistic missile. These launchers that can lift off from underground silos at Baikonur and Svobodny Cosmodromes and are stored inside launch-transport canisters. The Strela launch vehicle retains the same mechanisms and instruments section provided to the RS-18 missile. That section is placed between the two rocket stages and the payload fairing. The Strela launch vehicle can be fitted with two different payload fairings known as Ascent Unit 1 and the larger Ascent Unit 2. The liquid propellant consists of high-boiling components of hypergolic propellant with unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine as fuel and nitrogen tetroxide as oxidizer. The Strela launch vehicle features inertial autonomous control system that can place a payload of 750 kg into a circular orbit at an altitude of 1,500 km, 1,220 kg into a circular orbit of 800 km, and 1,400 kg into a circular orbit of 500 km.
