Bump:  With the successful Soyuz launch, also from Plesetsk, on December 3, this becomes the next Russian orbital launch.

I spoke to soon?  The launch date is still To Be Announced; the latest rumor(?) is it may launch circa December 20.

That's after the 36 OneWeb satellite launch on the 17th from Vostochny.

EDIT Dec 4: Or maybe it is the next Russian orbital launch after all?  See my post, immediately following this one.

The long-awaited Angara-5 (#Angaraa5) rocket is now reportedly penciled for launch on December 11... or else. DETAILS: http://www.russianspaceweb.com/angara5-flight2.html#2020

A launch date driver:
Quote
That launch date [No Later Than December 11] was reportedly close to multiple warranties on the rocket's systems. It is typical for the Russian rocket industry to end the warranties by December 31 of a particular year *. Naturally, the delay of the mission beyond the warranty deadline might require a complex re-certification process which launch officials often want to avoid.

EDITS Dec 4: Phrase added to the second sentence above:
Quote
*..., however according to one report, there were deadlines on this particular vehicle coming even a week earlier then the end of the year.

And further news; my bold:
Quote
The rocket was reportedly returned to the assembly building by November 29 and another meeting on the status of the mission was planned for November 30. Due to the scheduled mission of the Soyuz-2-1a rocket with Gonets-M satellites, whose ground track was passing in the proximity of the Angara launch pad in Plesetsk, it was decided to keep the 2L vehicle in the assembly building. After the successful launch of the Soyuz on December 3, the State Commission overseeing the Angara flight testing was expected to meet on December 4 to approve the return of the Angara-5 2L vehicle to its launch pad. According to various reports, the officials considered December 11 and December 14 as potential launch dates for the second Angara-5 rocket.

Hmm...those people at NK forums looking at that single source is skeptical of the user's validity due to the user's lack of post history....  :-\

Too early to say in this case IMHO per my own experience w/ similar Chinese sources we've all relied on.

Confirmation of launch. Article incorrectly states launch from Plesetsk.

https://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/10247513

"The second test launch of the heavy "Angara-A5" was carried out from Plesetska

/Updated, details added and background after the third paragraph/

MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. The Space Forces of Russia conducted on Monday the second test launch of a heavy launch vehicle "Angara-A5" with a large-mass mock-up of payload from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry said.

"The combat calculation of the Space Forces of the Air and Space Forces carried out a test launch of the heavy-class launch vehicle "Angara-A5" with a large-mass mock-up of the payload," the military department said.

The rocket was launched at 08:50 Moscow time from the launcher of the site No. 35 of the State Test Cosmodrome of the Russian Defense Ministry (Plesetsk Cosmodrome) in the Arkhangelsk region. As specified in the department, all pre-launch operations and launch of the space rocket "Angara-A5" were in normal mode."
