OMSK, July 29. /TASS/. The Khrunichev Space Center will deliver the 2nd Angara-A5 carrier rocket to the Russian Defense Ministry by the end of 2016, Center Deputy CEO Roman Khokhlov told TASS on Friday.
"Under the federal space program, we are to deliver the ready-made rocket [to the customer] by the end of 2016 for acceptance," Khokhlov said, adding that the launch date for the 2nd heavy Angara carrier rocket would be set by the customer.
At the first stage, the Omsk-based Polyot production association, which is part of the Khrunichev Space Center, will be annually producing five heavy and several light Angara family rockets, Khokhlov said.
"If necessary, the production facilities will help increase this number several-fold," the Khrunichev Space Center deputy CEO said.
"To give an idea of Polyot’s role in the production of the heavy Angara rocket, for example, it can be said that over 70% of its 55-meter height is now manufactured in Omsk. This share will increase after the manufacture of the nose fairing is transferred to Polyot," Khokhlov said.
