Projected growth variants of Energia, including in-line variant referred to in some sources as "Vulkain" or "Heracles." From an older edition of "International Reference Guide to Space Launch Systems," Steven Isakowitz.

Has development of Energia been completely abandoned now or is it still slowing bubbling away in the background somewhere?

Are Herkules and Vulkain two names that refer to the same variant in the Energiya-family of launch vehicles?

Model of Energiya-M from the USSR-Russian Space Collectibles web site.

NOTE: Although seller claims that model is authentic and accurate, the reader should be aware that the authenticity and accuracy of this model is in question. It may have been manufactured by another party without license.

15 Inches tall made from metal Energia Coirporation model of Energia-M launch rocket on wooden stand. Only one model available. *Availability and price check by e-mail or call.* + shipping.Details on this rocket carrier are below. Energia-M was competitor in a new Russian Heavy Launch Vehicle competion in 1993. The aim was to replace the Proton rocket. Energia-M lost the competion and as a result the Angara Launch System was choosen for development by the Russian Space Agency. Energia-M development has been abandonned. Perhaps in the future it could be revived. Energia-M was derived from the Energia Launch System used by the Buran. In comparison to Energia, Energia-M utilized 2 strap-ons instead of 4 and the core booster used 1 RD-0120 instead of Energia`s 4 engines.

..."Gherkules" was one of those "code names" for the N-1 that popped up in the early to mid-80's. IIRC, this was one that Art Bozlee was pushing around with his Soviet space secrets talks, and I *think* it got totally debunked by Jim Oberg right around the time George Herbert was splitting sci.space.* into several decent specialized groups while leaving .policy to fester and hopefully die on its own.

..."Vulkan", on the other hand, was another Energia variant:
