Soyuz-3 launch vehicle
In its original design, the main habitable volume onboard the Kliper would be contained inside a cone-shaped cabin structure. The lower half of the cabin would be enclosed within the main fuselage, while the top half would be covered with special protective shield. The cabin carried all avionics, flight control, and life-support systems.
By the beginning of 2006, the cabin took a cylindrical shape. The crew members would now sit in pairs in three rows, instead of previous two rows with two pilots in front and four passengers behind.
