Zond (LOK, L2)

LOK

LOK (Lunnyi Orbitalnyi Korabl) was a development of the Soyuz-capsule for lunar operations with the LK lunar lander and the N1/L3 lunar rocket.

Sixteen LOKs had been originally ordered. Of these, by February 1970, seven had been manufactured, although only three were being ground-tested for future flight operations. Only one LOK was ever flown, on the last N-1 late 1972.
