Svobodny Cosmodrome

Svobodny is a Russian rocket launching site used since 1996. It is situated at 51°42' N and 128°00 ' E. Originally constructed as a launch site for intercontinental missiles, it was planned as replacement for Baikonur, which became a foreign territory after the collapse of the Soviet Union, but the development was not finished because of financial difficulties. Since 1997 rockets were launched off launchers of the type Start-1. Certain launch sites can be modified for rockets of the Rockot (SS-19 based) class.
