One of the rockets currently in development by Russia is the Soyuz-5 rocket meant to largely replace their current Soyuz-2 rocket and supplement their upcoming Angara rocket family. It is mostly designed for launching satellite payloads into Low Earth Orbit with different variants handling larger payloads.

The Feniks I is an approximation of the smallest Soyuz-5 model, the 5.1, and is designed to lift 2 tonne payloads into LKO (Low Kerbin Orbit) and as such only uses two liquid fueled stages. The first stage handles most, if not the entire, ascent process with the second stage taking over in the upper atmosphere. There may be a drop in velocity upon firing the second stage depending on how far the rocket has gotten through the atmosphere. The second stage handles the rest of the ascent and orbital circularizaton.

I have also included a small test satellite used in some of my other builds.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
