The PTK NP spacecraft seems to be the future successor of the Soyuz spacecraft. Does anyone know when the first launch will likely be? The estimates I have seen vary a lot, so what will be realistic?
As for now (April of 2016) the plans are to build the first ship in 2019, launch in 2021. However, the country's economy is declining with negative forecast, so I highly doubt anything will be launched before 2026.
