Progress M-15 (Russian: Прогресс М-15) was a Russian uncrewed cargo spacecraft which was launched in 1992 to resupply the Mir space station.[2] The thirty-third of sixty-four Progress spacecraft to visit Mir, it used the Progress-M 11F615A55 configuration,[3] and had the serial number 215.[4] It carried supplies including food, water and oxygen for the EO-12 crew aboard Mir, as well as equipment for conducting scientific research, and fuel for adjusting the station's orbit and performing manoeuvres. It also transported the Mak 2 satellite, which was deployed from Mir on 20 November. TORU manual docking system was first tested in this mission.

Progress M-15 was launched at 17:19:41 GMT on 27 October 1992, atop a Soyuz-U2 carrier rocket flying from Site 31/6 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.[4] Following two days of free flight, it docked with the aft port of the Kvant-1 module at 17:19:41 GMT on 29 October.[5][6]

During the 97 days for which Progress M-15 was docked, Mir was in an orbit of around 396 by 399 kilometres (214 by 215 nmi), inclined at 51.6 degrees.[1] Progress M-15 undocked from Mir at 00:44:53 GMT on 4 February 1993, however it remained in orbit to conduct the Znamya 2 experiment, and research into autonomous flight.[6] It was deorbited on 7 February, and burned up during reentry over the Pacific Ocean at around 08:03:35 GMT.[1][5]
