    To be fair, there are no launchers currently operational with payloads much over 25T... so from that POV, Angara is a heavy class....

    (Delta IV Heavy tops the listings at 28.8T to LEO)

    I know but in text it's clear that author is referring to Angara as heavy/super-heavy rocket and confusing it with Soyuz-5​/Fenix

    Sputnik news is one hell of confusion. I was the first one to single out sputniknews .. but alas .. some words are just spoken as real time ..
    till today it goes on and on on and on .. non stop .. Russian think tanks .. we should compare if Russian language news articles also copy from this english articles..

    I specifically believe that Angara and Energia programs are separate programs.
    Coming up with 2 different architectures rd-191 and rd-170 series .. Russian military wanted 10 ton to upto 30 tonnes(LEO Payload) incremental order.
    Thats why Angara program was started  ..  and also probably cheaper than Energia program .. Russia is not in a hurry that is also true.
    Russia is busy in sanctions and import substitution to take of large scale programs like Soyuz SHLV.

    But Russia's leadership is also diseased with monetarist voodoo. Trying to run zero deficit budgets is insane. One spends today
    what one needs to spend and then can afford the payments later. Trying to have zero debt at all costs is just a BS cult superstition
    and not real economics and finance policy. Of course, I am not advocating artificial GDP growth via debt formation as happens in
    NATO. But the zero deficit extreme is also bad.

    Actually personally I think Khrunichev and kremlin both decided to kill the rd-171 program ..

    YU see the list
    1. Rus-m program 2012 circa
    2. majistral program 2010 circa(all RD-171) .. as we say clinton body count campaign in U.S just like here RD-171 murder campaign pardon the pun
    3. Energia k ..2008 , Soyuz Progress programs
    4. Angara 100

    There areendless programs with RD-171 .. but really now we know they have realized there mistake sanctions sanctions .. what sanctions mann.. U.S funded 50 percent of russia space program then also they killed rd-170 ..now they realized their mistake..

    You are right, the model Russia adopted was selling the family heirlooms to pay for routine operations. This is
    a self-terminating catabolic process and not rational economics. If Russia wants real "import substitution" it
    needs to stop relying on foreign "charity". To think some clowns on this board think that Russian spending
    is already high enough. It isn't.

    I want to award this post as the best analytical comment (ever) given on Russiadefence forum.
    In other forums there is a button to give the points in the post but here I did not find . I wanted to give 1 million points to the above post.

    This post exactly confirms analytical background of barbarous scaling back of Soviet space program and making Russia just a import substitution country.

    Yeah, lets be like the US and borrow to infinity with little to show for it besides some rockets, which are already being designed and built with current economic method! That will show the US and NATO who is boss!

    .
    Russia got what it deserved for thinking that someone else will be picking up their tab.

    I am really glad that the whole "global friendship and peaceful cooperation" urban legend has been deflated.

    Commercial launch fantasy is one of them. Thankfully reality is finally sinking in and USA companies are at last taking what is rightfully theirs. This has fortunate side effect of forcing Russia to finally start moving forward with their own projects instead of expecting to linger on forever off of Soviet equipment.

    Krunichev's behavior is prime example of it. They got what was coming to them. Hopefully Energia will be more intelligent.

    because of increased weight of domestic components many satelites cant be launched because they are heavier and older worse versions must continue to be launched  unshaven , and with angara fiasco (heavier launcher then proton) that is still not available- postponements go on for decade !!!!.... that all degrades russian space capabilities ,increases costs ,cascades postponements into other programs ,and creates chaos....

    MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. The crew of the Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft, which docked with the International Space Station (ISS) at 05:55 Moscow Time, has opened the transfer hatch and entered the station, the Russian Mission Control Center informed TASS.

    These days one forum topic gets merged with other forum topics , rightly so(due to global economics).

    Russia needs to generate extra sources of revenues in order to make its space industry
    independent.
    Cutting off defence expenditures and diverting them in space industry is not the solution.


    Russian deep state and U.S deep state are in continuous struggle for dominance.
    https://www.rt.com/business/404105-nord-stream2-europe-us-medvedev/


    Russia does not have huge middle class to generate wealth.It can only generate wealth slowly as
    the young generation grows and joins the labour force.
    The only way for Russia to immediately generate extra sources of Revennues in through Nord straeam , turk stream
    , LNG exports , China pipelines.

    Besides Russia India business is also drying up as Russia thinks that Indian regime is
    'not friendly'
    Previously Russia invested a lot in India(not that way) but as a hedge against sanctions ,
    but now Russian deep state has raised its head and brutally
    cut off all Indian projects.From submarines, aircraft , OIl gas , infrastrutcure, electricity
    everytihng. This situation demands extra ordinary circumstances to generate new revenue streams for Russian Deep state.


    I mean Russ gov knows that space industry is the"Achilles heel" .. as long as Russia space industry remains embedded with U.S
    it is the biggest national security threat to Russia apart fropm U.S nukes etc.Russian deep state understands this. Thats why so much desperate activity yu are seeing on ths front. Especially on diversion /catering of resources to space sector to stop the revenue generation from U.S

    I have seen nothing. It is a top secret development project in my opinion since it will revolutionize aerospace propulsion.
    But for sure it will not be here soon. The necessary high temperature materials science is advancing (and some of this
    advance will be used for "regular" jet engines) but the current state is far from what is needed. So the pulse detonation
    engines have the same constraints as the scramjets.

    Actually we live in very testing times , you will agree. Cool
     See if there is deception, clutter in "Russian leadership and its media" then we should reflect and
    inform it on forums.The forum actually is a mirror of Russian leadership and its media.

    We tell it  what actually the situation is  ..
    There is contradictory, conflicting policies being followed by Russian leadership ..
    Just see the state of affairs in USA ..American people are at war against CNN, fox, msn , twitter, .. you name it ..
    Russian media is also a part of teh same media .. We should not separate the two .. as they come from same cash flow..


    Only beautiful girls on both media and huge amount of dollars ..
    ha ha ha ha .. Razz
    yu can imagine the level of anarchy and chaos that is reflected in media.

    hence .. I also try to reflect , try to inform the forum about the "under currents " .. and hence my view points are very incoherent/diverse in nature.

    Well thx at least someone replied.

    Also i am surprised that there are still high temperature constraints, i thought we resolved most of those.
    Except for matter/anti-matter and controlled Nuclear rocket engines.

    BTW i still haven't got a proper grasp on how revolutionary it's development is.

    I would have been happy to reply, but I can't tell you anything new....

    The potential for a pulse detonation rocket engine is enormous.

    It is so simple.

    When first ignited a rocket engine often puts out 20-30% more power than when running normally... a pulse detonation engine uses that spike in thrust and repeats it continuously to get more thrust from a given engine arrangement...

    I see, so a good 30% improvement in thrust, perhaps with further development it could be increase to 50%, that does seem revolutionary.

    The key is overcoming the Brayton cycle. Most high performance jet engines today are in the diminishing returns tail for performance due
    to serious limitations of the Brayton cycle.
