The name of this template is a contradiction in terms. The term "launch vehicle" refers primarily to an American rocket, and whilst several other countries have adopted this term (particularly India), Russia still uses the term "Carrier rocket". The only exception to this that I am aware of is ISC Kosmatros. Therefore, the template should be renamed to reflect something that actually exists. --GW_SimulationsUser Page | Talk 21:57, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
