Russia resumes the program "Rokot", during which dozens of ballistic missiles removed from combat duty can be used to launch civilian satellites, Interfax reported, citing a source in the rocket and space industry.


With Russian overclocking unit. Missiles removed from duty will bring satellites into space


The missiles intended for participation in the program after modification will receive, as expected, the name “Roar-2”. The main difference from the first "Rokot" will be the use of the Russian, rather than the Ukrainian control system in the new upper stage "Breeze-KM-2". The first launch of the rocket using the new program from the Plesetsk cosmodrome is planned for 2020-2021
- source said

Recall that the last Rokot launch vehicle with a commercial satellite on board was launched in April. Until the end of 2018, three more launches with military and scientific spacecraft are planned, then the use of this type of missile will stop.

The Rokot launch vehicle was developed on the basis of a three-stage liquid ballistic missile UR-100N UTTH (in the NATO classification SS-19 Stiletto), gradually being removed from the Strategic Missile Forces. The civilian version of the ICBM was equipped with the Ukrainian Briz-KM upper stage, the first launch of the Rokot along a suborbital trajectory was carried out in 1990.

In 2015, the Ukrainian government banned the supply of rocket components to Russia. In addition, in 2020, the lifespan of the UR-100N UTTH rockets expired (they were produced before the 1985 of the year). In this regard, the Ministry of Defense plans to abandon the "Rokotov" and replace them with light carriers of the Russian production of "Angara".

        Where are you going, Angara? Hangar!
        Swampy clear waters ...
        Cheery bride yesterday
        You danced in the middle of wonderful nature ...

        And now spilled on the breg
        By the evil will of the sovereign Ham.
        Run away, Angara, run away!
        After all, you were born stubborn!

        And the taiga is buzzing over you ...
        And you hear less and less people.
        The river took itself land
        The voiced voice is all muffled, lower and lower ...

        Are you this, say, Angara?
        Peaceful villages are sleeping under you.
        I’m not looking for the yard now,
        Where once looked at the valleys ...

    So the solution itself suggests itself. It’s not to be allowed under the knife, as under Gorbachev, whose words “economy should be economical”.

    The error in the text of the article - "The civilian version of the ICBMs was equipped with the Ukrainian Breeze-KM acceleration unit." The block is produced at the RKZ Khrunichev Center in Moscow. Hartron Production Unit Management System. On the new block plan to replace the SU.

    UR-100N UTTH (in the NATO classification SS-19 Stiletto)
    Do NATO members in our articles also indicate our classification in parentheses? Or is the author afraid that they will not understand what is behind the hillock? Let them call our complexes as they want, but I have enough of their names. It is time to introduce import substitution in such trifles.

    The Dnepr program has nothing to do with the Voivode. This is a conversion option R-36M UTTH ...

    Nothing is terrible, if the western name. It’s better than our media sometimes write about R-36M missiles, giving them the contract name RS-36M, instead of RS-20
