The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) is an expendable launch system developed and operated by the Indian Space Research Organization. It is a medium-lift launch vehicle. 

It was developed to allow India to launch its Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites into sun-synchronous orbits , a service that was, until the advent of the PSLV in 1993, commercially available only from Russia. PSLV can also launch small size satellites into geostationary transfer orbit (GTO).

Some notable payloads launched by PSLV include India's first lunar probe Chandrayaan-1, India's first interplanetary mission, Mars Orbiter Mission (Mangalyaan) and India's first space observatory, Astrosat.

The PSLV Contains:

However, it lacks the second stage as seen in the real-life version. ------------------------------>

It can be completed by adding a Saturn V Third Stage or a Delta IV Second Stage. But, this is just optional.
