    In 1993, GKNPC, RSC Energia and the American corporation Lockheed created a joint venture Lockheed-Khrunichev-Energia (LCE). The main objective of the joint venture was the marketing of launch services of the Proton launch vehicle. Within the framework of this enterprise, the GKNPC provided the production of a launch vehicle, adaptation of the payload to it, development and manufacture of a fairing, and provision of launch services. The LHE joint venture was reorganized on June 7, 1995 into the International Launch Services Inc ..


    We have strange relations with the Americans ... frankly unnatural ... on the one hand, the US Congress imposed sanctions on us, but on the other hand it does not touch this industry of cooperation. what

    What the hell belay

      Everything is business for the United States, and therefore such relationships are needed by our rocket engines because of their relative cheapness, and most importantly, their reliability. hi

      Ordinary capitalism. It is like the attitude of large corporations. Here we cooperate, here we are friends against a third party, here we fight to the death. Profitable - we cooperate, profitably - enmity. The actions of the Americans are essentially the destruction of competitors. But if there is a favorable opportunity for cooperation, then they also try not to miss the chance. Hence the behavior of our arm, which lucidly explains to them that the "terpils" live in a different entrance. And it is better to cooperate with us than to quarrel. For it is fraught. At the same time, they will not stop shitting us anyway, as weakening a competitor is sacred. request
