The second in history launch of the Angara-A5 heavy rocket took place

The state corporation Roskosmos announced that today, December 14, 2020, at 08:50 Moscow time, the Angara-A5 heavy-class launch vehicle was successfully launched from the Plesetsk state test cosmodrome in the Arkhangelsk region.


As part of the test program, the second-in-history launch of the named rocket was made. The carrier was first launched back in December 2014, that is, six years ago. Then the separation of the stages and the discharge of the head fairing went through normally, and the orbital unit successfully separated from the third stage.

This time “Angara-A5” was launched in conjunction with the upper stage “Breeze-M” and the payload model. After the launch, the carrier was accepted for escort by ground means of the Main Testing Space Center named after G.S. Titov of the Space Forces of the Aerospace Forces.

“ At the estimated time, 12 minutes 28 seconds after the launch, the orbital block consisting of the Breeze-M upper stage and the spacecraft’s weight-and-weight model separated from the third stage of the carrier. Its further insertion into the target orbit is carried out due to the operation of the propulsion system of the Breeze-M upper stage, ”the Roscosmos said in a statement.

It should be noted that the Angara is a family of environmentally friendly missiles of various classes. They are based on the URM-1 and URM-2 universal rocket modules. One URM-1 is used as part of the Angara-1.2 light class carriers. The maximum number of URM-1 can be a three-stage heavy missile “Angara-A5”.
