Which launch date is correct? Is there a link to the Roskosmos official schedule?



Since this mission will use Soyuz 2-1A,  the implication is that the payload fairing would be  maintained for about an extra minute, or else the Progress will carry more cargo than normal, it would be interesting to see which approach would be taken for this launch,

The following attachments of Soyuz-U and Soyuz 2-1a are for comparison only and should give you an idea of the plan based on past flights.

So there is only one contract for four rockets at the moment.

The tender for four 2-1A rockets was raised in July 2012, contract signed August 2012.

1st delivery was scheduled for June 2014, for the launch of Progress-MS № 432, scheduled for launch in October 2014.

http://www.zakupki.gov.ru/pgz/public/action/orders/info/events_journal/show?notificationId=3885879

So any earlier possible use of 2-1A is incorrect?

Yes. You can do us a favor and calculate the increased cost of using 2-1A vs Soyuz-U for Progress, to see if there is a significant difference.  We could then figure out the launch cost of flying the additional 400 kg of payload.

2014 - Soyuz-U 685,047,000 ruble - Soyuz-FG 742,880,000 ruble - Soyuz-2-1A 0,939,502,000 ruble
2015 - Soyuz-U 737,558,000 ruble - Soyuz-FG 799,466,000 ruble - Soyuz-2-1A 1,019,087,000 ruble

2014 - Soyuz-FG 742,880,000 ruble - Soyuz-2-1A   939,502,000 ruble - Soyuz-U 685,047,000 ruble
2015 - Soyuz-FG 799,466,000 ruble - Soyuz-2-1A 1,019,087,000 ruble - Soyuz-U 737,558,000 ruble
2016 - Soyuz-FG 773,600,000 ruble - Soyuz-2-1A 1,055,578,000 ruble

Serial numbers starting Г15000 are for 2014. If the sequence repeats as before then Р15000 for 2015 and У15000 for 2016.

Победный «Прогресс»
Телестудия Роскосмоса
Published on 17 Apr 2015
Старт ракеты "Союз-2.1а" с транспортным грузовым кораблем "Прогресс М-27М" намечен на 28 апреля. «Прогресс» почти полностью загружен. В нем – четыре тонны необходимых на орбите продуктов питания, воды, сжатого воздуха, сменных комплектов одежды для космонавтов. Есть и несколько особенных грузов. Ведь нынешний старт на МКС накануне Дня Победы. На его борту ставшие уже традиционными георгиевские ленточки для всего экипажа станции и копия знамени Победы.
