MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS/. The Progress Space Rocket Center has signed an agreement with the Center for the Certification of Rocket and Space Activity on certifying four Soyuz-5 medium-class carrier rockets that will undergo flight tests in 2022-2025, according to information posted on the government procurement website on Thursday.

The contract is worth 13 million rubles ($198,770) with the works set to begin on July 15, 2019 and end on June 30, 2024.

Two Soyuz-5 rockets are set for certification by June and August 2022, the third launcher by August 2023 and the fourth carrier by August 2024, the documentation says.

The Soyuz-5 medium-class carrier rocket is being developed by Energia Space Rocket Corporation. Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos has earlier approved its conceptual design. The Soyuz-5 will be able to deliver the promising manned Federatsiya spacecraft into a low near-Earth orbit. The Soyuz-5 is set to be developed by 2021. During the new rocket’s flight tests, its four launches are planned to be carried out in 2022-2025.
