MOSCOW, November 24. /TASS/. Russia’s Khrunichev Space Centre plans to build more than ten Proton-M carrier rockets in 2015, the Centre’s deputy director general and general designer of the Salyut Design Bureau Yuri Bakhvalov said on Monday.
“Our goal is to reach a production level of 12 Proton rockets a year. But it is not the end in itself. So far, we plan to build 12 rockets. If some of the tasks are no longer topical, we will build a lesser number of rockets,” he said.
