Progress 18 (Russian: Прогресс 18) was a Soviet uncrewed Progress cargo spacecraft, which was launched in October 1983 to resupply the Salyut 7 space station.


Progress 18 launched on 20 October 1983 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Kazakh SSR. It used a Soyuz-U rocket.[2][4]


Progress 18 docked with the aft port of Salyut 7 on 22 October 1983 at 11:34 UTC, and was undocked on 13 November 1983 at 03:08 UTC.[3][5]


It remained in orbit until 16 November 1983, when it was deorbited. The deorbit burn occurred at 04:18 UTC.[3][5]
