Caption: Ariane 5 launcher. An engineering test vehicle of an Ariane 5 launcher seen on its combined transporter and launch table at Kourou, French Guiana. This launcher is identical to an actual Ariane 5, except that it is made of components not cleared for 'live' use. It is used primarily to check all of the pre-flight assembly and handling procedures up to the moment before engine start. The launch table carries the Ariane 5 from the Final Assembly Building to the ELA-3 launchpad on a twin railway track.
