Trivia

  • This rocket's original design (the R-7/Vostok, which can be semi-accurately recreated by removing the second stage) was used to launch the first satellite into orbit, Sputnik 1. Later, it also brought the first man into space, Yuri Gagarin.
  • The spacecraft is often incorrectly referred to as "LOK" in the game, speaking of which, was a variant of the Soyuz spacecraft in the late 1960s and early 1970s that would have been used in the Soviet crewed moon missions, however ended up cancelled following the failure of the N1 rocket.
  • The first version designed by the soviets were to be used as ICBM's (Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles). They were later refitted for more peaceful purposes.
  • The total cost of assembling the Soyuz is $17,625,000.
  • There are 5 varieties of the rocket. Its official name is the R-7 Semyorka, literally "The 7". The one used here is the Soyuz variant.
  • There are actually 3 stages of the Soyuz rocket. The first stage is defined by the boosters and core stage, the second stage is just the core stage and the third stage is the in-game Soyuz 2nd stage.
