The Baikal project will be Russia's response to the Ilon Mask rocket

In Russia, with the assistance of the Foundation for Advanced Research, the development of an ultra-light launch vehicle suitable for reusable use is underway. The reusable Russian rocket is designed to put into orbit up to 6 centners of payload.

When developing a new launch vehicle are used technological developments on the Baikal project - a promising reusable accelerator. The fuel rocket will be a mixture of liquid oxygen and liquefied methane. Convenience to launches will make it possible to carry them out from mobile launch complexes.

After launch at an altitude of approximately 60 kilometers, the first stage of the rocket will separate. The return to the launch pad will be carried out using a modified turbojet engine. To stabilize and better manageability, the developers equipped it with a tail, as well as a rotary wing.

It is anticipated that such a return unit may be reapplied up to fifty times. After that, the marching engines can be replaced with new ones. Thanks to such savings, the cost of launching reusable Russian missiles will be lower than that of competitors in the class, one and a half, or even two times.

The United Aircraft Corporation and Roscosmos are working together on a project for a returnable launch complex. The first tests are expected in 2022. It is assumed that the new launch vehicle will be Russia's response to the Falcon 9 Ilona Mask.

    Unfortunately, all this is chatter. Before bragging, at least once they started .. We took a bad habit of running in front of a steam locomotive ... But the center of Khrunichev has almost been destroyed and if it does, it’s very, very soon, but most likely it will be completed

    So the one-time "Angara" was buried? The money has been laundered ... Now a new world football championship in space ... there are also rumors that they will dig a groove from the Caspian to Azov ... Baikal will be forgotten ... - four ... The money will be found: the pension fund should not only feed Chubais. Pensioners are rich.
    In general: "the night has come and work has begun to boil in the Land of fools."

    This move is already lagging behind. For them, the passed stage, but for us the goal. It is necessary to do it ahead of time, and not copy already done by someone. Although using someone else's experience is also useful

    Fresh tradition, but hard to believe! Rogosa campaign understood the service correctly, increases his wealth, shoves relatives in the state apparatus, making loud but empty statements! Baikal ... Yeah, maybe Tarhun?

    Why is the Buran project bad? Take it and if necessary, improve it (after all, technology does not stand still) and produce it. Lovers of reinventing the wheel, everything devours a budget.

    Moscow has got used to living off Russia's regions since Soviet times. All projects were carried out with a second thought - to snatch more from the budget. For example, car numbers - even at the stage of their introduction, it was clear that a more complex combination of numbers and letters was needed, given the size of the country and its development. Today it is clear to everyone that a new replacement of car numbers is coming soon - new budget costs and new cuts. And so - in everything. Especially in such large-scale projects as "BURAN". Rogozin, Chubais and others like them have two goals: 1. To cut as much as possible into your pocket 2. To sell Russia to the neocons at the highest possible price. Hope to be saved overseas ?! They are needed here, as jackals, but not there. Remember the Russian Foreign Ministers Shevardnadze and Kozyrev - where are they?
