The fact that the serial production of a new launch vehicle in Omsk will begin in 2022-2023, the functionary announced back in July 18th. And so, on the eve, the head of Roskosmos confirmed his words, adding that in 2023 the Polet plant will launch production of 4 rockets, and in 2024 - 10 carriers (8 heavy and 2 light) per year.
Recall that to date, only two launches of a promising missile have been carried out. Light 1.2PP and heavy A5 Angara were launched in 2014 from the cosmodrome in Plesetsk. In the future, the launch of carriers is planned to be carried out from Vostochny Cosmodrome.
