Russia will give China RD-180 rocket engine in exchange for breakthrough electronics...
Chinese portal Sohu published an article on technological exchange between Russia and China. According to the publication, Beijing will supply to Moscow microelectronics in exchange for the sale of rocket engine RD-180....
Notice how Chinese journalists, China is seeking to connect to comic research, but to develop their own rocket engine of sufficient power, the Chinese developers are not able to. Russia is also interested in microelectronics, the production of which was successfully established in China.
Negotiations on the supply of rocket engines lasted a very long time, and eventually the parties came to a mutually beneficial agreement. Without a doubt, buy the RD-180 will give a serious impetus to the development of China's space industry and imported from the East microelectronics will enable to improve the domestic system GLONASS and to help further the development of defence industry of the Russian Federation.
Special attention was attracted to the RD-180 due to their outstanding characteristics. The mass of this rocket engine is only 5.5 tons and its thrust at vacuum reaches capacity, equivalent to 380 tons. It can be called "technological trump card", which Russia used in relations not only with China but with the United States.
But it's worth noting that the Russian developers have proven their ability to create unique units and no bulk supplies of microelectronics, China. As previously reported, the Western media has been seriously concerned about the Russian unmanned submarine "Poseidon", which can be used as a high-speed nuclear torpedoes.
