BOR-4

Enumeration of all the flights

Designation Launch date Detail
1 - 05.12.1980 First try of "BOR-4" for the orbital flight
2 Cosmos-1374 03.06.1982 Sea landing in the Indian Ocean at 560 km in the south of Cocoa's islands. The Australian reconnaissance planes took detailed photos of the lifting body and its recovery.
3 Cosmos-1145 15-16.03.1983 Sea landing in the Indian Ocean at 560 km in the South of Cocoa's islands, once again watched out by the Australian reconnaissance plane.
4 Cosmos-1517 27.12.1983 To avoid the espionage from the Westerners the lading zone is moved in Black Sea. The braking impulse is given above the North Atlantic Ocean.
5 - 04.07.1984 According to foreign sources the flight took place at 130 km of height with a suborbitale trajectory. The USSR did not confirm this flight.
6 Cosmos-1614 19.12.1984 Sea landing in the Black Sea after accomplishing a turn. The lifting body is lost in sea by the recovery services.
7 - 20.10.1987 According to foreign sources the flight took place at 130 km of height with a suborbitale trajectory. The USSR did not confirm this flight.
