The paper presents the results of the analysis of the dynamic processes occurring at different stages of the operation of the installation unit of the super-heavy-class space rocket complex for one of the options for completing the Yenisei space rocket, intended for both the implementation of the lunar program and deep space exploration. Verticalization and installation of the ILV under consideration on the launch pad is carried out by a lifting and installation unit of an original design. The main feature of this unit is the presence of two tilting axes. The considered type of installation unit has not previously been used in domestic complexes for ILV. Despite some similarities of such a unit with a classic installer with lifting frame, in the course of its operation, specific operating modes arise with increased dynamic loading of the unit structure and the lifted product. The calculations made it possible to propose constructive solutions that ensure a decrease in dynamic loads on a space rocket during verticalization and installation on a launch pad.
