Construction of 2.02 is believed to begin in 1988. The spacecraft belong to the second series orbiters, whose design has been improved considering experience of flight of K1 Buran.
By 1993, when the Buran program was cancelled, orbiter 2.02 was in an early stage of construction (10-20 percent). Only forward fuselage with crew cabin was completed. The incomplete 2.02 was later partially dismantled at its construction site and moved to the outside of the Tushino Machine Building Plant, near Moscow.
Some of the tiles from orbiter 2.02 were sold and auctioned on the Internet.
