1. In September 2019, Dmitry Rogozin promised that the second copy of the Angara-A5 rocket would be handed over to the Ministry of Defense in November 2019, and the launch would be made before or after the new year. As of December 4, there were no media transfer messages. It can be assumed that the launch will also be postponed.
