The official report notes that the fall zone of the separating parts of the launch vehicle is partially located on the territory of the Kargasoksky, Parabelsky, Kolpashevsky and Verkhneketsky districts of the mentioned region. The territory of this zone is bounded by an ellipse with axes of 160 x 50 km, the center is located 65 km north-west of Lake Tresch. It is specified that the type of the separating parts of the launch vehicle will be the second stage, the destruction of the fragments of which during the fall will be accompanied by a bright glow.

The Russians were warned about the imminent launch of the most powerful launch vehicle

Note that before that there were only two flight design tests (launches) of the "Angara-A5" LV. The first took place on December 23, 2014. Then the launch vehicle weighing 768 tons, including the satellite overall mass mock-up (payload) weighing 2,04 tons, which is inseparable from the Breeze-M upper stage, was successfully tested. The first stage fell at the Vuktyl missile range in Komi, the second at the Kolpashevo missile range in the Tomsk region, and the third in the Philippine Sea.

The second flight test took place 6 years later on December 14, 2020. It was also successful and similar to the first.

The third flight test was scheduled for December 2021. Moreover, this time the upper stage of the third stage of the launch vehicle should be “Perseus” (14C48). This is a representative of the family of upper stages "D" - the fifth stage of the N1-L3 space rocket complex, designed for Soviet cosmonauts to fly to the moon. It uses a pair of liquid oxygen - kerosene as fuel, and it is allowed to refuel with "synthin" without reworking the structure. There will also be a size and weight model of the satellite.

The fourth flight design test with the Perseus upper stage (14C48) is to take place in 2022 also from the Plesetsk cosmodrome.

    - Ha ... - I remember how ... how ... how - about 1,5 years ago - personally I had displeasure here ... here ... here "talking" with a certain "expert"; who so vehemently disputed the idea that it was absolutely impossible to launch heavy missiles from Plesetsk !!! - And how he was supported by the "local minus audience" - just everyone was ready to "lay down the bones for a just cause" ...
    - And now - it has not passed - some 1,5 years and ... and ... and - a program has already been drawn up for launching a whole series of heavy missiles - and, oddly enough - from the Plesetsk cosmodrome ...
    - Ah ... - what a "surprise" ... - Alas ... - this "expert" turned out to be just an impudent boast and a primitive fool-ignoramus ... - Well, and his whole "support group" ... - an ordinary likeness of this "expert" ...
    - My plus to the author of the article ...

    Dimona-Batutchik would have been thrown somewhere to Aldebaran one way.

    The most important thing is a cover army. A large mosquito rocket fleet. This is ours. Hehe. And the tsar has a bomb at the ready.

    The most interesting thing in this launch is its working off with RB Perseus. Docking with it in orbit and Soyuz-MS on a flyby around the Moon can be launched.
  5. Well, well done Rogozin - one word! We need Zheneral-shpyena tsyryu Borisov on the hat and Rogozin - in his place!

    Rogozin is a fine fellow, a hard worker. And our guys from the space industry are the pride of the Russian people.
