    Indeed. The target is clear. Corrupt, 5th column management maggots who need to be identified and exterminated.
    All the bitching at Russia for "failing" is utter nonsense. It is clear by now that the head is not rotten. It can and will
    clean house and get the job done.

    People do not understand that the Mecca for these maggots is Washington and not Moscow. This is true for most of
    the world including the EU. So American "success" is not a viable model. America did not have a 5th column undermining
    its space program. (It has other problems, but that is not the issue.)

    Rogozin is stepping on all the right "klop"s and that is why the shrill whine of liberast lies and blood libel is ramping up.
    If not for Rogozin, Vostochny would have been a total disaster and not finished to this day.    Russia cannot afford
    5th column liberasts setting the agenda.   Crush them without mercy.

    Cringe is too weak word to describe this

    On Sputnik Germany was an article that the new heavy rocket (90 tons LEO/20 tons Moon) will be ready (first start) by 2027 and that it will build on the new "medium" rocket Soyuz-5.

    Russia will create for the superheavy rocket engines on gas and hydrogen

    For the super-heavy-class launch vehicle, new engines will be built, operating on liquefied gas and hydrogen, Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Roskosmos, told reporters.

    "We do not abandon the creation of rocket engines with new fuel, and we plan to create a separate program for creating a superheavy-class carrier, and this program will immerse the work on engines running on liquefied natural gas and hydrogen, so this subject remains a priority, and it will is connected with overweight, "Rogozin said.

    The fact that in Russia the development of the hydrogen engine for the carrier rocket of increased carrying capacity "Angara-A5B" and the superheavy carrier rocket began, Rogozin announced in June 2017. Then he said that the engine was named RD-0150. The engine is created on the basis of RD-0146 by the Design Bureau of Automotive Automation in Voronezh, taking into account the experience of creating a Soviet RD-0120 engine for the Energia missile. At one time, the development of RD-0146 was jointly funded by the Space Center. Khrunichev and American company Pratt and Whitney.

    Interesting.  So work proceeding on the RD-1050 and hydrolox U/S for Angara 5V, plus a mix of methalox/hydrolox for Soyuz-5 based SHLV.

    I suspect there will be two variants of Soyuz-5 cores.  An initial kerolox version for launch from Baikonour, followed by a methalox variant from Vostochny.  Its all opaque as bullshit at the minute (as usual) so who the feck really knows....

    Putin: Flight tests of super-heavy rockets to begin in 2028


    MOSCOW, July 18. /TASS/. The timeframe of developing Russia’s super-heavy carrier rocket must be complied with and its flight tests should begin in 2028, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with the management of the State Space Corporation Roscosmos on Wednesday.

    "It is important to timely implement some large-scale and significant projects, including the creation of the super-heavy rocket system," Putin said.

    "Let me stress that all the time limits that were set earlier must be complied with and the flight tests should begin in 2028 as planned," the Russian president stressed.

    Considering the strategic importance of the space industry, the Roscosmos management should focus on key tasks, Putin said.

    The Russian leader emphasized the need to timely implement the most ambitious projects, such as the creation of the super-heavy rocket.

    Among other tasks, the head of the Russian state highlighted the need to build up the country’s orbital grouping. Putin demanded "to radically raise the quality and the reliability of satellites and their delivery vehicles" and ensure the creation of the modern domestic components base to increase the term of the active operation of satellites in orbit.

    I wish Putin will also set deadlines for Gorshkov and Su-57 development so they can finally start mass production..

    That is why Su-57 is ordered for 12 units. That's for testing purposes. And setting deadline to a ship that was plauged with problems won't solve it at that moment.

    You children have never had to do big projects in your life, have you?

    Sometimes you let go in life. Sometimes if your order in a restaurant takes ages, maybe you have a flight to catch. You just leave.
    Such is life.

    640 satellites, 25 "Angara" rockets. Grandiose plans for the Russian project "Sphere"

    https://topwar.ru/144552-640-sputnikov-25-raket-angara-grandioznye-plany-po-rossiyskomu-proektu-sfera.html

    About this number said the head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin:

    In total it is planned to receive 640 space vehicles for optimal provision of navigation coverage, remote sensing of the Earth and communication services.
    For understandable reasons, the journalists before whom Rogozin spoke were interested in what amount of carrier rockets Russia will need to implement this large-scale program.

    Rogozin:

    It will take at least 25 new Angara rockets. At the same time, this will help to load up the enterprises with orders for the creation of new missiles.
    At the same time, Rogozin announced the shift in the beginning of the project for a year: since 2022.

    At the moment, Roskosmos is conducting research work to create a multi-profile orbital satellite grouping. One of the components of the program is the so-called Internet of things.
