Russian manned lunar lander. Study 1988. Lunar lander for Energia-launched lunar expedition. The LOK and LK lander would be inserted into lunar orbit by separate Energia launches.

AKA: Lunniy korabl. Status: Study 1988. Gross mass: 29,000 kg (63,000 lb). Height: 9.80 m (32.10 ft). Span: 8.40 m (27.50 ft).

After rendezvous and docking in lunar orbit, three of the five crew aboard the LOK would transfer to the LK and descend to the lunar surface. After 5 to 10 days (5 days standard, 10 with additional consumables) on the surface, the ascent stage of the LK would return to lunar orbit, and the crew would transfer back to the LOK. Prior to landing an unmanned Lunokhod would scout the region, allowing selection of a suitable landing site, and serve as a landing beacon for the precision LK landing.

Crew Size: 3. Orbital Storage: 30 days.
