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.
