Part of R-7 Family
A major derivative lightweight of the Soyuz, abandoning the four side-mounted conical strapon boosters that were the R-7 family's trademark since the ICBM and Sputnik launches in 1957. The core stage's lower section has been slightly enlarged in iameter and a new propulsion system used - the main engine is the NK-33A based on the NK-33 first developed (but never used) for the N-1 moon rocket in the 1970s. (An Americanized version of the NK-33, the Aerojet AJ-26, is the main engine for Orbital's new Antares rocket). The Soyuz-2-1V second stage is the same Blok-I stage as the existing Soyuz-2-1B, with an RD-0124 engine. An optional Volga third stage is a low-thrust orbit positioning bus derived from the Yantar satellite propulsion system.

AKA: Blok-A. Status: Active. First Launch: 2013-12-28. Last Launch: 2015-12-05. Number: 2 .
