Quite interesting...

Perhaps the good Flateric knows something more.
This rocket family could be (or not) connected with the Angara development?

Seems quite a bit more adventurous in its engine choices than Angara. Finally a chance for the rather excellent RD-0120?

It's alternative offer...another dustbin candidate. As one of the NK forum guys said, 'against a backdrop of this, Khrunichev's offer looks quite nice!'
