Roscosmos broke the contract for the production of rockets "Angara"

Recently we Reportedhow the Roscosmos state corporation placed an order for the Angara-1.2 light launch vehicle (LV) and how, at the Vostochny spaceport, they began to build a launch pad for the Angara family LV. And so, on October 30, 2019, Roscosmos decided to terminate the contract with JSC State Space Scientific-Production Center named after M.V. Khrunichev for the manufacture of the first copy of the Angara-1.2 launch vehicle.




It should be noted that the production of the Angara-1.2 launch vehicle was planned for launching three Gonets-M spacecraft (communication system satellites) into orbit (numbers 33, 34,35) in order to replenish the orbital constellation. The contract was solemnly signed in the summer of 2019. Its value was announced - 2,028 billion rubles. The negotiated Angara-1.2 was to be born by October 15, 2021. Now they are clarifying from Roskosmos that it was decided to put the Gonets-M satellites into orbit using the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle

The launch (three - ed.) Of the Gonets spacecraft, scheduled for 2021, will be carried out on the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle. Previously, the launch of these spacecraft was planned on a launch vehicle of the Angara type.

- explained in the press service of Roscosmos.

Roscosmos emphasized that the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle is fully adapted to launch these spacecraft. At the same time, without explaining why this decision was not made earlier, even before the conclusion of the above contract, because Soyuz-2 is a modification of Soyuz-U and it can be launched from any existing launch complex (Baikonur, Plesetsk "," Eastern ").

    Ndaaa ...
    In general, Roskosmos works according to the principle: stay there - come here. Maybe it's easier to break the contract with Rogozin, and not with Khrunichev?

    Most likely, Khrunichev is now busy with something else and he is not interested in light-class missiles, which are already enough.

    -Well ...- After all, quite recently I wrote about the GKNPTS named after M.V. Khrunicheva. in Omsk...

    PO "Polet" is one of the largest industrial enterprises in Russia, which has been specializing in the production of rocket and space technology for over 75 years.
    Production capacities, high qualifications of specialists, great scientific and technical potential, the use of advanced technologies allowed PO Polet to make a significant contribution to the country's defense-industrial complex, and to become the only plant in the former Soviet Union, and then in Russia, where missiles were also produced - carriers, and spacecraft, and super-powerful engines RD-170, and aircraft, both military and civil aviation.
    Since 2007, the plant has become an integral part of Russia's largest rocket and space holding, formed on the basis of the Space Center named after M.V. Khrunicheva (Moscow) by decree of the President of the Russian Federation.
    In connection with the reorganization, the enterprise is undergoing technical re-equipment, high-tech types of production are being developed, new jobs have been created, financial and economic conditions have been improved, and wages have increased.
    The main task of the enterprise as part of the Center. M.V. Khrunicheva became the organization of mass production of rocket modules for the Angara launch vehicle family.

    And you can bring a lot, much more ... -Yes, what's the point ... now ...
    - This spring high representatives from "the state apparatus" and from Roscosmos visited Omsk, promised a whole bunch of orders and contracts and ... and ... and this autumn they backed up ...
    - That's all...

    Apparently, for some reason, the Angara or the launch pad is not yet ready. Perhaps some imported components could not be replaced in time. There can be many reasons. I think we hoped to be in time at the time of signing the contract. Not everything worked out and it was decided to launch it on Soyuz. When introducing new technology, not everything goes smoothly; everyone has delays and failures. The Americans, for example, also did not have time to finish their ships and will now fly on the Soyuz. The case is comparable. But something is not audible that he and Musk break the contract. Should you throw tantrums?

    Omsk is "lucky" all the time. Like Ukraine. Kharkov plant them. Malysheva is capable of repairing and upgrading previously manufactured tanks, but not capable of producing new ones. In Omsk - the same. Aircraft manufacturers in Ukraine and Omsk stopped making airplanes. Dvigatelists of Omsk and Zaporozhye can not be close to equal the production of the early 1980s. Omsk-Fedorovka airfield ... And what about Ukraine in 5 years? The Omsk metro consists of an entrance to the station. All Ukraine and Moscow alone - compare the metro building. Now "Flight" has become equal to Dnepropetrovsk.
    Radio engineering plants here and there ...
    But the oilmen rule! And - SPORT! Whether it's Dynamo Kiev in football or Avangard Omsk in hockey. And what fans!

      Still in debt, like in silk. The old leadership of loans for 300 years to go. I was in Omsk in September, although little by little they began to make roads.

      And - SPORT! Whether it's Dynamo Kiev in football or Avangard Omsk in hockey. And what fans!

      Arena is closed. Now they will play along the river. Cracks in the supporting structures. The foundation, it seems, is normal, and the rest will be taken apart. Built by architects. Remained a memory of Abramovich. sad
