    can russia afford 7,8,9 ? soyuz ,proton, soyuz -light, zenit, angara ,sunkar,phoenix,in many versions + and many light rockets...
    ..............

    Only ones left soon will be Soyuz-2, Angara (1 and 5) and Soyuz-5.

    Old Soyuz, Proton and other stuff will be retired (eg. Moloniya-M was permanently ditched the moment Soyuz-2 went live)

    Sunkar and Fenix are just different names for Soyuz-5 which is Zenit derivative (that will also be ditched the moment SeaLaunch gets first Soyuz-5 delivered)

    And man rated Soyuz rockets will be retired once Federation is up and running.

    So just 3 types of rockets. They could trim it down to 2 if they wanted to but Soyuz is just too good and Angara-1 is there by default simply due to being component of Angara-5.

    Russia accelerates work on developing hydrogen engine for super-heavy carrier rocket

    The engine will increase the lift capacity of the Angara-A5 carrier rocket to 37 tonnes, and the engine will be subsequently used in the third stage of a super-heavy carrier rocket

    BISHKEK, June 8. /TASS/. Russia has started developing a hydrogen engine for the Angara-A5V carrier rocket with the increased lift capacity and also for a super-heavy launcher, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told TASS on Thursday.

    "A decision has been made to accelerate work on a super-heavy-class rocket. In this regard, R&D work has already been launched and work will begin on the RD-0150 hydrogen engine," Rogozin said.

    According to Rogozin, this engine as part of the third stage increases the lift capacity of the Angara-A5 carrier rocket in its Angara-A5V modification to 37 tonnes and the engine will be subsequently used in the third stage of a super-heavy carrier rocket.

    The vice-premier compared the Angara-A5 upgrade to the Angara-A5V version with the inclusion of a motor vehicle into a different category.

    "Speaking in automobile terms, this is a heavy truck."

    Rogozin earlier said that the Russian president had assigned State Space Corporation Roscosmos the task to accelerate the work on creating a super-heavy rocket through the development of the relevant technologies.

    Roscosmos Head Igor Komarov said earlier that the launch complex for the super-heavy rocket at the Vostochny cosmodrome was planned to be built by 2030. The Soyuz-5.1 new medium-class rocket being developed under the Phoenix R&D work is expected to become the first stage for the super-heavy launcher.

    Development strategy envisaged a Soyuz-5 launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome for 2034 and a super-heavy rocket launch for 2035.
