The Voskhod ("sunrise") was an enlarged version of the Vostok, and was developed to fill the void when there were delays in the Soyuz program.

The Voskhod 3 mission was initially delayed because of the near disaster with Voskhod 2. Eventually, all follow on Voskhod (3-6) missions were cancelled after the Soyuz 1 disaster.
