It was originally planned the N1 would form the basis of a family of launch vehicles that could replace existing ICBM-derived boosters. The N111 would use the third and fourth stages of the N1, and the second stage of Korolevís R-9 ICBM. This would result in a lift-off mass of 200 tonnes and a five tonne payload. It could replace the R-7 derived boosters (Vostok and Soyuz) in this payload category.
LEO Payload: 5,000 kg. to: 300 km Orbit. at: 51.6 degrees. Liftoff Thrust: 237,140 kgf. Total Mass: 215,900 kg. Core Diameter: 4.8 m. Total Length: 33.0 m.
- Stage Number: 1. 1 x N-111 - A Gross Mass: 192,000 kg. Empty Mass: 20,000 kg. Thrust (vac): 260,000 kgf. Isp: 331 sec. Burn time: 216 sec. Isp(sl): 296 sec. Diameter: 4.8 m. Span: 6.8 m. Length: 12.0 m. Propellants: Lox/Kerosene No Engines: 12. NK-19
