Having completed the verticalization, specialists from Roscosmos enterprises performed operations on docking communications of the “package”, assembling temperature control circuits, docking fueling communications and other operations according to the preparation schedule.

A feature of launch preparation in the Guiana Space Center is the separate transportation of three stages of the carrier and the space head part with their assembly on the launch pad using a mobile service tower.
