Description: The RD-170 is the most powerful liquid fuel rocket engine ever designed and fielded. It was developed by the former Soviet Union in the 1980s to power the Energia massive rocket engine intended as the launch vehicle for the Buran spaceship. The engine burns a mixture of RP-1 and Liquid Oxygen (LOx) in four combustion chambers developing a lift-off power of 170 MW. The RD-170 engine was completed in the late 1980s and entered into service for a short period of time and then retired. Nevertheless the RD-170 engine design has been utilized for the development of other engines used by Russia and the United States of America (USA).
