The joint-stock company NPO Energomash has completed the 2017 program of the year for the supply of RD-181 rocket engines to the United States, according to the company's website.


In accordance with the contractual obligations, NPO Energomash JSC 31 of October 2017 of the year sent to the USA two RD-181 engines
- said in a statement.

The company notes that the engines successfully passed tests at the Scientific Testing Complex (NIK-751) of NPO Energomash.

Energomash has sent two engines RD-181 for Antares launch vehicles to the USA


This is the second delivery of engines in the United States. The program for the supply of RD-181 in 2017 was fully implemented
- noted in the NGO.

RD-181 is designed and manufactured by NPO Energomash. This is a single-chamber liquid-propellant rocket engine with a vertically located turbopump assembly.

The contract for the supply of Orbital ATK RD-181 engines was signed in December 2014. In the same year, the design documentation was released, at the beginning of 2015, the first fire test of the RD-181 engine was carried out, and in May 2015 was successfully completed its certification. The engines are designed for installation on American launch vehicles (PH) Antares.

Earlier it was reported that the United States, in connection with the restrictions on military-technical cooperation from Russia to 2014 introduced in 2019, plan to completely abandon the Russian RD-180 engines with which Atlas 5 are equipped with the US United Launch Alliance (ULA). Deliveries RD-181, which are equipped with new Antares PH for the ISS, are limited to the civilian sphere.

          That's how it is: the United States with its Antares rushing, rushing - this is the carrier, and with our engine RD-181 - this is the launch vehicle. Feel the difference! smile

              But the fact that the RD-181 emits zombie rays that allow you to control any US citizen, only three know: my father-in-law, Dmitry Rogozin and husband Hilary Clinton (this is what controlled his cigar in the Oral Office). Well, now you are also in the know. Only, pliz, nobody else lol

                  Max, welcome! I don’t understand: RD-181 seems to be a two-chamber engine, and here they write that it is single-chamber. Or do we specially make a single-chamber RD-181 for them? Are you off topic?

                    As far as I know, the 181st is just single-chamber. And it was under Antares that it was developed. It seems that the two-chamber 180th served as its basis ... what

                      I searched the internet and found that RD-181 is an export (modified) version of the RD-191 engine, and this is a single-chamber engine.

            Russia is simply fulfilling its obligations ... Such is our nature!
            I remember after the collapse of the USSR, Russia even paid the tsar’s debts .. And to us, no one, as always .. Let them use it! We have even cooler perspectives.

      Well, well .. Freshly the tradition ... The lousy Mistrals weren’t sold to us so as not to facilitate the logistics in Syria, and the trainer bulbs in Mulino weren’t sold so that, God forbid, the combat readiness of the Russian army grew one iota .. And what are we to them? The engines for your missiles that spy satellites, communications, target designations derive? By all means! And for the earned money we’ll buy from you more debt ..
      RRS: About the money for salaries to employees that the engines do not need, these are pennies for the state in the above-mentioned pieces of paper we put on ORDERS more! There is money, but the question is who is spending it like that ....

    I think everyone is aware that the Americans do not sell us not only military equipment but also equipment with the possibility of double use. And on our engines they launch military satellites, tracking, positioning, etc. And we are shaking for money that we won’t get if we don’t sell them to them. And we ourselves find an excuse.

    Energomash sends two RD-181 engines for Antares rockets to the USA

    That's how it is: the United States with its Antares rushing, rushing - this is the carrier, and with our engine RD-181 - this is the launch vehicle. Feel the difference! smile

    They concluded an agreement with us for the supply of this engine (60 units in the amount of 1 billion) thanks to our best Ukrainian friends. At one time, the Americans bought from us very old NK engines, left over from our lunar program and dusted at the warehouse for half a century. And the Ukrainians have modernized them so that Antares exploded at the start. After that, the Americans came to the conclusion that it is better to buy directly from the Russians

    Quote: SRC P-15
    Max, welcome! I don’t understand: RD-181 seems to be a two-chamber engine, and here they write that it is single-chamber. Or do we specially make a single-chamber RD-181 for them? Are you off topic?

    This is a “quarter” from the four-chamber RD-170.

    Money, money, making more money is the main national idea of ​​Russia today. and concepts such as national dignity are no longer important. They are sticks in wheels, and you are their engines, so that they are not very far behind in the most advanced industry. If it were the other way around, they would have shown you butter cookies for a long time and not engines.

Those who pour bad liquid every day on Americans, look for agents of the State Department in each, and the fifth column is now amicably voted, which is very good that we are selling strategic engines to America. But in order to support them, we can also say that several trillion dollars were invested in the American economy, which were withdrawn from Russia.

    While the Americans provide the "workload" of our space industry with the production of serial RD-181 engines (created on the basis of RD-170 for the Energia launch vehicle in 1987), they themselves are successfully mastering advanced production facilities. And China has planned the first launch of a reusable spacecraft for 2020. This was reported by Xinhua News Agency. Generally not embarrassed to copy and fly into space.
    When will there be reason to be proud of the Russian cosmonautics like the first manned flight into space, fully automatic operation in space and the Buran atmosphere or the Mir orbital station that has no analogues, it was flooded in the Pacific Ocean on March 23, 2001 (exactly 40 days before the anniversary of the first flight man into space)!
    PS There is no Russian symbolism in the interplanetary space, but there are dozens of devices with the symbols of a civilization that no longer exists - the USSR: on the moon and around it are "Moon-1 - 24", "Probe" and "Lunokhod-1 -2"; the devices that studied Venus, Mars and other cosmic bodies - Venus-1 -16, Vega-1 - 2, Mars-1 - 7, Phobos ... etc.
