The Anagara family includes five types of launchers ranging from small-lift launch vehicles (with a LEO load capability of 2.0 to 3.7t) to a heavy-lift launcher capable to carry a 28.5t payload.






One such module is essentially the first stage of both the Angara 1.1 and the Angara 1.2 small-lift launch vehicles (differing in the types of their second stages). The Angara 3 and Angara 5 medium-lift and heavy-lift launchers are configured by adding two and four generic rocket modules, respectively, to Anagara 1.2. Depending on the particular mission, each of these launchers will be used in combination with either a Breeze M or KVRB (a LOX/LOH upper stage).
