    “Left: The general configuration with six strap-ons. Middle: The Core Alone (CA) configuration. This version has no strap-ons. To compensate for this an Aerodynamic Stabiliser (AST) is included. Right: This version has strap-ons with extended length (XL) and more propellant loading. This is the most powerful version of the PSLV. It was used for both Chandrayaan-1 and the Mars Orbiter Mission.”

    On a side note PSLV G and XL version have strapons individually equipped with their own separate SITVC too! For PSLV XL strapons PSOMXL-4 and 5 have it and only PSOM 4 in PSLV-G
