“A contract for several missiles of this type in the framework of experimental design work was signed at a price of less than 5 billion rubles per missile, which is already significantly lower than the starting price, which some media refer to,” Roscosmos reports to RIA Novosti.

So they noted that the high cost of the Angara-A5 rocket is explained by its assembly in two cities - Moscow and Omsk, as well as by piece manufacture.

It is noted that after the start of serial production of a closed cycle, the cost of the product will decrease.

Earlier it became known from the documents of the Khrunichev Center that the cost of production of the Angara-A5 launch vehicle is 7 billion rubles, which is three times the cost of production of the Proton-M rocket.
