As at October 2011, only the Delta IV remained in production. However, previously built hardware for five more Delta II vehicles existed and was available for purchase to launch customers. They would likely launch from Vandenberg AFB on polar-orbit missions, according to NASA and rocket manufacturer United Launch Alliance.[1][2] As of 31 January 2015, 2 of the remaining Delta II vehicles had been launched with 2 more slated to launch NASA spacecraft in 2017 [3][4]
