Roscosmos to Design Lighter Version of Proton

Joint project Bayterek (Russia-Kazakhstan) implies the use of a new space-rocket complex of Roscosmos.


      It belongs to Kazakhstan and is situated at the Baikonur spaceport. Russian missiles will be launched from there.

      Russia and Kazakhstan reviewed their cooperation format after Yuzhmash Factory (Ukraine) had stopped production of  carrier rockets Zenith. Now Russia is going to construct a modernized version of Proton, which will fit to be launched from Zenit platforms in Baikonur.


      Alexander Medvedev, the Roscosmos general designer of rocket systems told about these joint plans. He noted that RD-171 engines are going to be used in the new rocket. It is reasonable in the light of downward tendency of satellites' mass. Lighter carrier rockets are required now and thus Proton should be modified, with its second stage removed.
