Part of Ariane 5 Family
Ariane 5 ESC-B
Ariane 5 ESC-B
The ultimate evolved Ariane 5 funded as of the end of the millennium. A larger LOx/LH2 upper stage using the Vinci motor in place of the HM7B. The core remains the same. Result is an increase in GTO payload from 10.5 metric tons to 12.0 metric tons.

Status: In development. Payload: 12,000 kg (26,000 lb). Thrust: 15,360.00 kN (3,453,060 lbf). Gross mass: 790,000 kg (1,740,000 lb). Height: 60.00 m (196.00 ft). Diameter: 5.40 m (17.70 ft).

Payload: 12,000 kg (26,000 lb) to a GTO, 7 deg.
