Launch vehicle ZENIT-3SLB

It is intended for injection of average mass payloads to medium and high circular and elliptic near-earth orbits, including GTO and GEO, as well as fl yaway trajectories.

It is launched from Baikonour launch site.

The three-stage integrated launch vehicle is created basing on Zenit-3SL LV, used in the Sea Launch program.
