ISRO Unified Launch Vehicle Update:

Here is a table that lists possible configurations of ISRO's under development Unified Launch Vehicle. ULV has been envisaged as having a common standard core stage comprising of a semi-cryogenic stage (SC160) and a cryogenic stage (C25). Solid strapons/boosters with variable propellant loading (S12, S60, S138, S200) would be added to the launch vehicle to achieve a particular payload range. By having a standard core stage design will help in further cutting down the launch cost.
