A new rocket engine has been created in Russia

A new rocket engine has been created in RussiaNPO Energomash offers a rocket engine of its development for use in light-carrier rockets of Soyuz-2.1в, said the head of the company - executive director of NPO Energomash Vladimir Solntsev.


“The initially lightweight Soyuz-2.1v was created on the basis of the NK-33 engine, on which the groundwork had been made since Soviet times — a certain number of engines are kept in stock. Tests of the first launch vehicle are planned on these engines, but now there is a discussion about whether or not to restore the production of these engines. In my understanding, it would not be a wise decision to restore the production of these engines, because we have created a modern analogue of this RD-193 engine, which exceeds the NK-33 technical specifications. Moreover, we have already established production of a prototype of this engine, created on the basis of the engine for the Angara RD-191, ”said V. Solntsev.

According to him, NPO Energomash has released a draft design for the modification of this engine for Soyuz-2.1в, conducted five fire tests of the prototype.

TsSKB-Progress considers this engine for the future, i.e. when the reserve of NK-33 engines will be completely exhausted. We are ready to supply the engine, ”said V.Solntsev.

The new RD-193 engine is smaller in height by 760 mm and by almost 300 kg is lighter than the RD-191.

      Vladimir, you are absolutely right, but look from the other side. Recently there was nothing at all .. Nothing at all. And now, at least, it has moved off the ground .. Not just cleaned from rust, but improved. And what's more, they start production.

      and then everything will be fine with rocket propulsion engineering! hi

      - "we have created a modern analogue of this RD-193 engine, which exceeds the NK-33 in its technical characteristics. Moreover, we have already established production of a prototype of this engine."

      there are many promising developments! But only in the defense industry enterprises must be invested ....!

      From this legacy, the Americans in the 90s simply went crazy ... when they found out about the NK-33

          Khrushchev, said that this work was useless and instructed the Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU, Frol Kozlov, the second person in the party hierarchy after himself, to gather all interested and explain the fallacy of their position.

            This is the cosmic carrier of Keldysh. Even the USSR, with all its power, carefully cultivated by Stalin, did not draw two directions in rocket science - Korolev and Keldysh missiles. Something had to choose one ...

            Which shuttle? The storm is a large stratospheric cruise missile with a warhead, a direct competitor to the royal seven. In connection with the successful completion of the test of the seven, its greater mobility and lower cost, the Storm project was closed. Storm trials initially failed, so there wasn’t one successful launch, otherwise the first satellite would have been launched on the Storm.

      What does it mean unfortunately ?! And what does Soviet mean?

      Here you can only call Soviet ideas of those times, that is, those that came to our scientists' minds then, 20 years ago. BUT many projects are demonstrated TODAY, not with ideas on paper, but with ready-made copies. Modernized, completed, on today's elemental base, with today's financing, largely updated personnel, etc. Which is not unfortunately, but to JOY means the movement of Russia along the military path TODAY. It would be sad from the news that the ideas of the Soviet era were not destined to materialize. But, excuse me, with the news when these ideas are embodied and demonstrated in the working mode - here you have to rejoice, and not be sad, Sven !! ;)

    Initially, the lightweight Soyuz-2.1v was created on the basis of the NK-33 engine, according to which a backlog has been created since Soviet times - a certain number of engines are stored in a warehouse.

    Yes, a lot of thingsо
    ]It became very interesting to me that we "disappeared".

    Good evening!
    Yeah ... there was a lot of things: there was a great country with an advanced NT school, advanced rocket science, which has been used so far.
    And we lost the magnificent rocket engine RD-180, which was sold in 2000 for "loot" (which everyone loves to "saw"). General Dynamics bought it and put it as the first stage on its Atlas -1 and 3 launch vehicles! Then it was "finalized" (made easier) and it became the basis of all RN-Amerovsky: 5 stage ...
    According to the Bureau of Scientific and Technological Development "Energia", this gift (you cannot name it otherwise!) EBN-atika saved 10 states !!! years of R&D and a lot of money. To be honest, for me it would be better to give a ton of gold, but selling our KNOW-HOW is a betrayal of the country's interests!
    Yes, we have the RD-191 "Angara" and it's great! BUT amers, hopelessly lagging behind in the liquid-propellant engine, now breathe in our backs, and they are not particularly in a hurry to sell solid-fuel engines. "Critical" or dual-use technologies are banned from them.
    Such is the bitter truth of life, and you say paws! It's a shame until snot, brother!

    These are all "revisions" of the "Energy" engines. Today at the press conference of V. Lopota it flashed that they can restore "Energy". Much less money and time are needed than before. Then the country would have a space program and the rest could be carried for a lot of money.
