Good catch, the slide says varying GTO payload from 7 tons to 16 tons by varying boosters. So maybe its 7 tons to GTO and 23 tons to LEO with two SC-120 boosters and then 16 tons to GTO and 41 tons to LEO with two SC-400 as boosters. And without the boosters it'll be 5 tons to GTO and 16 tons to LEO. HLV will be truly modular and cover the entire range from higher end of medium lift LVs to the entire heavy lift LV spectrum. While PSLV will handle rest of the medium lift LV segment and SSLV and Private Space startups handle the light lift LV segment. Future is bright. Lets hope SCE-200 is a resounding success.
