GSLV Mk III

Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III (GSLV Mk III) is a heavy lift launch vehicle developed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). It is capable of carrying 4 ton class of satellites into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit or more than 10 tons to Low Earth Orbit.
The GSLV Mk3 is powered by three stages of engines – solid-fuel, liquid-fuel and cryogenic fuel. ISRO is currently working to enable GSLV Mk III land vertically to recover first two stages of engines and make the launch vehicle reusable. Once these projects are successful, the Indian space agency will have significant cost advantages.
