These are models of the next generation of Russian rockets. The Angara family of rockets, powered by liquid oxygen and kerosene engines, are designed to replace the existing Russian Proton boosters at some point during the current decade. They will carry payloads of varying weight, ranging from 1,500kg to 25,000kg, into low Earth orbit.
