off topic: the railway enthusiasts will say: Who is the star here, the Angara or "2M62 1218" ?
research: built in 1987. So time is relative.  ;)

The second launch vehicle "Angara-A5" was taken to the launch complex of the 35th site of the Plesetsk cosmodrome. Ahead is the test fueling of the rocket, draining, transportation to the filling station for filling the low-pressure tanks of the upper stage "Briz-M" and then back to the launch complex.

Briz-M 88802 (88534)

Is that a new Briz-M or an old one?

Briz-M 88802 (88534)

Reference source is via Satori's site.
88534 is the original number and 88802 is the Second Briz-M for Plesetsk with 88800 being for testing and training at Plesetsk. The Previous Angara-A5/Briz-M New number is 88801. 88534 was a Baikonur number at one time before receiving upgrades required for launch from Plesetsk. They are pulled from the standard production line and converted as needed.

Thank you very much.
The Proton-M used the 885xx Briz-M regularly until 2008. Then the 995xx Briz-M (enhanced?) was used and only a few 885xx Briz-M (remaining stock?).
That is why I asked.

The remaining previous Briz-M versions are being flown out on Angara before switching to the latest Phave 4 Briz-M version as the baseline upper stage.  999xx is a reserved series and might be used for the final angara Briz version or be the one for Vostochny.
