Numbers: 
1979 payload ; 1979 Failure ;
spacecraft. 
Type: 
Piloted Spaceship Program 
Sponsor: 
Soviet Union's Defense ministry 


Launch: 
20 April 1979 , from Baykonur
Cosmodrome's LC81P, by a Proton 8K82K. 
Orbit: 
N/a 
Decayed: 
20 April 1979 
Mission: 
On 20 April 1979, LVI4 VA (VA s/n 103 and
s/n 008) was awaiting launch. The booster ignited, but then shut down on
the pad. This triggered the launch escape system, which pulled the top
capsule away from the booster. The parachute system failed and the capsule
crashed to the ground. The lower capsule remained in the rocket. The top
capsule was to have been manned, but the inability to demonstrate two consecutive
failurefree launches of the Proton/TKSVA combination made that (luckily)
impossible. (Proton booster could be reused with new payload.) LVI4 test
was orbited a month later as Cosmos 1100 and 1101. The pair launched were
the 102P/102L twins from LVI3.
