Sur la jupe avant, l'angle de calage des rétrofusées de séparation est réduit de 8,75 à 1 degré. Les simulations de séparation entre les deux premiers étages ont démontré la nécessité de cette modification qui est liée à l'allongement de l'étage, le centre de gravité à la séparation étant maintenant beaucoup plus éloigné de l'avant de l'étage.
