Abstract:

The article summarizes some available information on Soviet carrier rockets. They can be divided into those carrying a payload of scientific character, and those that can be used for military purposes in space. The design of the Vostok-type rocket which dates back to 1952-54, is purely Soviet. The RD-107 engine was developed during 1954-1957 and is based on a motor used for medium range rockets. Author
