Soyuz launch vehicle
Today, Soyuz is marketed internationally by STARSEM, a joint Russian/French consortium. Work is underway to develop the Soyuz 2 and Soyuz Fregat-upgraded versions of the current Soyuz and Molniya vehicles. Plans called for engine performance improvements to the first stage core and liquid strap-on boosters, a new second stage based on the RD-0124 staged combustion liquid oxygen/kerosene engine, a new flight control system, and the addition of an Ariane 4 payload fairing option.
