Caption: Energia M launcher photographed on a launch pad. Energia M was a scaled-down version of the Energia rocket and was designed to replace the Proton launcher. It used two Zenit boosters instead of the usual four, and only one main engine instead of four. Despite being ready ahead of its competitors, the Proton replacement contract was handed to the Angara project in 1993 and Energia M was cancelled. Photographed during trials in August 1990.
