Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS)
Soyuz MS-23 will fly without crew to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to replace Soyuz MS-22, that suffered a thermal control system depressurization/leak on the ISS on December 15, 2022.
The Soyuz 2.1A converted the flight control system from analog to digital, which allowed launch from fixed platforms. It also allowed big fairings and payloads.
