    MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos has placed an order to the tune of 2 billion rubles ($31 million) for the manufacture of a light Angara-1.2 carrier rocket for the launch of Gonets-M satellites, according to the information posted on the government’s procurement website on Monday.

    "The manufacture and the delivery of an Angara-1.2 carrier rocket for the launch of Gonets-M Nos. 33, 34 and 35 satellites. The initial (maximum) price of the contract is 2.028 billion rubles," the statement says.

    According to the technical assignment, the rocket is required to be manufactured and delivered by October 15, 2021.

    A light Angara-1.2PP was launched in July 2014. The rocket carried a spacecraft mockup. Now the Russian space agency has placed its first order for this rocket for launching real satellites.

    Bids for an open tender, which will be held electronically, will be accepted through July 11, 2019.

    "The supplier will be required to provide quality warranty for the products supplied. The warranty period shall be no less than ten years from the date of signing a document on the products’ acceptance by the state customer. Operational readiness and acceptance tests should be carried out in compliance with GOST state standards and technical conditions in the process of controlling the quality of the Angara-1.2 carrier rocket," the tender’s documentation says.

    The output’s technical acceptance should be conducted by the quality acceptance office of Russia’s Defense Ministry. In the manufacture and the delivery of the Angara-1.2 carrier rocket, the main contractor must prevent any theft (loss) of data media constituting a state secret, including illegitimate access to the data constituting a state secret, as well as data leaks constituting a state secret, via technical channels," according to the documentation.

    the trouble with these smaller rockets for LEO satellites - is they spend 1/2 their time competing with "decommissioned" ICBMs like the Rokot
    so they always seem "expensive" by comparison …. maybe the Russians are finally running out of "Rokot"s

    must admit I didn't realise that the RD-180 version which is a 2 nozzle version of the RD-170 has a similar liftoff thrust to the Soyuz-2
    just to confuse everyone they are going to call it the Soyuz-7 Volga
    its conceivable that it could replace the old workhorse Soyuz-2 one day …

    if they did that …. then every launcher the Russians use will be derived from the original RD-170 …
    which started life as reusable boosters for the Energia/Buran ….

    RD-191 Angara 1.2 …. 1 nozzle (replace Rokot)
    RD-180 Soyuz-7 ………. 2 nozzles (replace Soyuz-2)
    RD-171 Soyuz-5 …….. 4 nozzles (replace Zenit)
    5x RD-191 Angara A5 ….. 5 nozzles
    6x RD-170 + 1x RD-180 Yenesei Super Heavy ….. 25 nozzles (replace Energia-Buran)

    pretty remarkable ….
    incredible economies of scale and cost savings …. and quality control benefits

    all they have to do is …. do it all
    and build new launch pads … and … and … and

    Next Generation Rocket Angara: News - Page 14 Empty Vostochny Angara launch pad

    Post  Gazputin on Wed Aug 07, 2019 3:14 am

    apparently most of the facility is going to be underground
    based on the existing Angara pad at Pletsetsk which seems similar to Proton pads at Baikonur and Plesetsk

    one thing is for sure …. the bodies of those guys that embezzled all the money will be buried under a hell of a lot of concrete ...

    those 2 towers you can see it background is the Soyuz launch pad

    http://kosmosnews.fr/2019/07/06/youri-borisov-vice-premier-ministre-visite-le-chantier-angara-a-vostochny/

    meanwhile the space city nearby is being expanded Tsiolkovsky

    http://kosmosnews.fr/2019/06/10/la-cite-de-tsiolkovsky-continue-de-se-construire/

    things are happening …. Gazprom is putting gas pipelines into Tsiolkovsky city too
    from the nearby (massive ) Amur gas processing plant

    http://www.gazprom.com/press/news/2019/april/article478794/

    they still seem to be using Blagov-whatever-sk airport to fly in upper stages and satellites etc
    guess the planned Vostochny airport will be done after the Angara pad is finished …

    apparently they are looking at the Angara boosters flying back to the airport
    that the Bartini group are worked on again …..the Baikal project resurrected
    so guess it makes sense to understand what you need for them first

    those Baikal flyback boosters are pretty big …. easily bigger than a Mig-31 ….
    what a strange airport that would be - with squadrons of 4 jet powered boosters flying back in ….

    that would be worth seeing as a tourist …. watch the launch from the airport …. then see the boosters come flying in
    30 minutes later …

    MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. The second test-launch of Russia’s Angara-A5 heavy carrier rocket is scheduled for the second-third quarter of this year, CEO of the Khrunichev Space Center (the Angara rocket manufacturer) Alexei Varochko said on Wednesday.

    Second heavy Angara-A5 missile to be sent to Plesetsk Cosmodrome this March

    Earlier, the Maksimov Space Systems Institute Research representative Yuri Klimenko disclosed that the number of Angara flight tests was reduced from ten to six

    MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. The second Angara-A5 heavy carrier missile is scheduled for delivery to Plesetsk Cosmodrome (Arkhangelsk Region) in March-April this year, says Alexey Varochko, Director of the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center, the maker of the missile.

    "We have a goal: March-April - the machine [Angara-A5] goes to the Cosmodrome," Varochko told Russian Veterans Union and Russian Military Commanders Club during their visit to the Center.

    After that, a train will return from Plesetsk to Omsk’s Polyot engineering company to fetch modules for the third Angara and bring them to Moscow, to the Khrunichev Center, where the modules would undergo final tests and the missile would be assembled.

    Earlier, the Maksimov Space Systems Institute Research representative Yuri Klimenko disclosed that the number of Angara flight tests was reduced from ten to six.

    Angara is a family of Russian carrier missiles of light to heavy classes. The new family uses eco-friendly duel components. So far, the missile had only two launches: the light Angara-1.2PP and the heavy Angara-A5, both started from Plesetsk in 2014.

    The Russian Ministry of Defense has ordered four Angara-A5 launch vehicles


    According to the newspaper "Vedomosti" in the material of Alexei Nikolsky, "the Ministry of Defense ordered four launch vehicles" Angara ". The cost of the contract is about 18 billion rubles, ”included in the“ Roskosmos ”GKNPC Khrunicheva and the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for four Angara-A5 space launch vehicles, RIA Novosti reported on June 3 and confirmed to Vedomosti a source in the Ministry of Defense. In January 2020, according to RIA Novosti, it was expected that Roscosmos and the Ministry of Defense would conclude the first contract for the serial supply of Angara-A5 missiles after a test launch scheduled for 2020.

    The contract is estimated at over 18 billion rubles. and must be completed before 2024, says a source in the Ministry of Defense. According to the manager of the space industry, the conclusion of this long-term contract will allow them. Khrunichev did not stop the untwisted production pending the contracting of the necessary cooperation chain, which could have happened if the conclusion of the contract had been postponed until the launch of the second Angara-A5 from Plesetsk. The first and so far the only launch of the "heavy" modification of the Angara from Plesetsk took place in 2014; currently, the Vostochny Cosmodrome is constructing a second launch pad for launching missiles of this type.

    Angara is one of the most long-term projects of the Russian space industry, the decision to create this rocket to replace Proton, launched by Baikonur, which appeared on the territory of independent Kazakhstan, was made in the early 1990s. However, real funding for the project began in 2006.

    According to the federal official, the decision to prematurely sign the Angara contract was made as part of the decision to prematurely conclude a number of major contracts of the Ministry of Defense in order to support the defense industry in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. These decisions include the expected contract for the supply of 76 Su-34 front-line bombers worth over 100 billion rubles, which was reported by Izvestia. In addition, a formal signing of the contract and the laying of two universal landing ships in exchange for the Mistral-class ships of this class, which were not delivered due to the embargo by France in 2014, is expected soon, the Vedomosti interlocutor says.
