Russia is preparing to launch the first Angara missiles


The first light rocket of the Angara family will go to the Plesetsk space center this month, and its launch is scheduled for May 2014 of the year. This was reported by the press service of the center. Khrunichev, where the missiles were made.

The Angara missiles will deliver various cargoes to low earth orbit. They are intended to replace the outdated Proton launch vehicles, which are planned to be written off after 2020.

“At present, the schedule of preparatory work for the first launches of both light and heavy Angara launch vehicles has been approved. The project implementation work has been taken under the personal control of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Rogozin, ”said the representative of the Center for them. Khrunichev.

A heavy version of the rocket called the Angara-A5 will be sent to the Plesetsk cosmodrome in November, and its launch should take place before the end of next year.

      It is necessary to come up with something breakthrough, even if our missiles are the best in the world, but it is necessary to develop and launch fundamentally new types of ships.

        They have Drones - let us have "Dryny". And what? A jerk through the unlocked door, the adversary does not really see anyone in front of him - and then he hit the back of his head with a birch Drin ...

      well, if Shoigu and Rogozin run this LV, then they will meet the trial period, or someone will lose their position (those who have not yet cut down what they need not to steal, but to do the job)
      Now we will return the law on criminal liability for the theft of state property.
      a package of laws has already been submitted to the Duma for consideration, including on criminal liability for the theft of state property.
      in the old code the article was as No. 89 prim (from 7 years to capital punishment with confiscation)
      stole, caught, imprisoned, confiscated ...
      I did not understand the first time - they caught, shot, confiscated ...

      and then the "managers" will have a completely different life ... behind bars)))

    From the beginning of the 90s they have been cooking ... and everything is ready to be seen. And all because the Muscovites are pulling a blanket over themselves ... they are ruining their colleagues in Siberia ... but they planned to start production there.

    Carrier rockets "Proton", worthily carried the glory of domestic rocket science into space.
    We wish you a successful continuation of missile system missions "ANGARA".

      "they carried it with dignity" As far as I know, they will still carry and carry glory, at least for several years, together with Angara. Although the poisonous ProTONS ... smile

    Eh, a person very close to me did not live up to this day. He was awarded many USSR awards including the Korolev medal (somewhere in 2007-2009). In the community of rocket launchers - a very respected award. In 2012 has died. I was really looking forward to the Angara ... He headed the Department of Applied Mechanics at EVAKU in the 90s. Then he returned to the missile theme. And he died - at work. More precisely, they took me away from work to the intensive care unit ... When the Chief Designer found out about this, he ordered an urgent search for a replacement. After long meetings, we came to the conclusion that in order to replace it 1 you need 3x and that is not a fact. The old Soviet school of rocket science, however. Maybe someone understood who it was ...

    Here's another piece of news:
    The Rubin St. Petersburg Design Bureau and Makeev’s Miass State Rocket Center completed the creation of the Skif ballistic missile, which can standby for a long time on the sea or ocean floor and, on command, hit ground and sea targets. The missile tests are scheduled for late June 2013, and if they are successful, the carrier will be transferred to the Ministry of Defense for state tests. However, the subsequent adoption of the missile into service may complicate political relations between Russia and other countries, since the current agreement with the United States does not provide for the deployment of strategic weapons outside of submarines under the water column.
    Factory tests of a promising ballistic missile should take place at the bottom of the White Sea. According to the newspaper Izvestia, the experimental diesel-electric submarine B-90 Sarov of project 20120, already modified to carry out such a task, will be used to install the carrier. The ship is equipped with a torpedo tube with a diameter of about a meter and additional ballast tanks, which should maintain the stability and position of the submarine under water after the rocket is dropped. During the tests, the missile and its loading system into the sea from the ship to the submarine will be tested. In Makeev Center, the development of “Skiff” was confirmed, but the details of the project were not disclosed.

    The launch is scheduled for May 2014.

    will fly or not fly? In the days of the union, it was first launched, and if everything is fine, solemnly announced. Sometimes it cost a small note in the newspaper that the satellite N 2 *** was successfully put into orbit by the R. Rutin rocket. Now, on the rocket the paint has not dried out, they blow all the pipes. And how does it star? And what is the effect of expectations? Do it, get the result, then at least hang up with medals from head to toe, deserve it. And while there is no result, tryndet not fucking.

    The technique is new, I think it will not do without problems. Perhaps it will be like a mace. But a negative result, also a result, our designers did not cope with. Good luck with their complex and extremely important work !!

    It’s interesting where the n.i.d.a. who screamed here that the project of the hangar will remain a project. That neither 14, 17, 20 will fly anything new in Russia. It will be very interesting to see his opuses. Or has he / them already been cut from the site?
    PS: Shoigu in the receivers of the furious GDP.
