Family: R-7. Country: Russia. Status: Hardware. Other Designations: Soyuz. Library of Congress Designation: A-2. Department of Defence Designation: SL-4. ASCC Reporting Name: Sapwood. Article Number: 11A511U2.

Soyuz 11A511U2 used synthetic kerosene ('Sintin') in first stage for launch of premium reconnaisance satellite and manned payloads requiring just a bit more payload than the standard 11A511 could offer. Further use of the 11A511U2 abandoned in 1996 due to Sintin production stoppage. Later Soyuz spacecraft launched on standard Soyuz, with reduced payload and rendezvous with Mir in lower orbit accepted.
