Russian reusable rocket “Angara” will be equipped with wings
The Khrunichev center is planning to equip the reusable stage rocket of light class “Angara-1.2” folding wings to enable it after delivery of the goods to make a soft landing on the airfield. This “Izvestia” said the Director of the center Alexei Morocco.
The company is developing a reusable version of “Angara” in accordance with the instructions of the President and government of Russia.
“On this subject is conducted development work. We fulfill it with “Roskosmos” and OKB myasishcheva,” — said the head of the Center Khrunichev.
Experts are also studying the possibility of the return of the first stage with its own engines by analogy with the American Falcon 9 rocket or using a parachute.
