Russian news sources report that the suborbital maiden test flight of the smallest version of Russia’s new Angara launch vehicle was a success. The launch took place at 1200 GMT from the Plesetsk launch site in Northern Russia on 9 July 2014. According to the sources, the launch of the Angara-1.2PP rocket carried a 1430kg dummy payload on a suborbital trajectory to crash 5,700km away in the Kamchatka peninsula. Following this successful flight, a full orbital attempt using the Angara-5 will be attempted later this year.
