Adaptation of "Eagle" to the heavy "Angara" will cost more than 1 billion rubles

The adaptation of the promising Russian spacecraft Eagle for the Angara-A5 rocket will cost Roskosmos about 1,1 billion rubles. Reported by the agency RIA News with a link to materials posted on the public procurement website.

All work should be completed by the end of March next year. The Eagle will start its first test flight in November 2023. The launches will be carried out from the Vostochny cosmodrome.

Recall that the development of a new generation reusable spacecraft was launched in 2009. Initially, the device was called "Federation".

It is assumed that the Orel spacecraft will become a new transport system for the delivery of astronauts to the ISS, which will replace the aging Soyuz.

In addition, the promising device will also be used for deep space flights. In particular, for the delivery of cargo and crews to the moon. For these purposes, a super-heavy rocket is now being created.

According to the plan, the first manned flight of the Russian reusable spacecraft to the ISS should take place no earlier than 2025. In turn, Eagle's missions to our natural satellite will begin towards the end of the 2020s.

    The information field is being formed in an interesting way. We are waiting for the comments about the money stolen and wasted without any benefit. I looked about what kind of "adaptation" we are talking about ....

    The draft design of a single complex of a heavy launch vehicle and a spacecraft for flights to the Moon and Mars should be ready by the end of March 2021.

    That is, we are talking about preparing for a flight to the moon. And by the way, for the "unbridled critics", the draft design and the sketch are not the same thing. smile

    Meanwhile, quietly and imperceptibly ...

    Is it by chance that at this particular time they tell us not about the launch in Plesetsk, but about the unfinished "Federation"?
