RD-219 is a derivative of RD-217 with a truss and some piping changes. Despite higher expansion ratio the engine is shorter than first stage engines. The result is relatively low performance, with Isp just 3 sec more than that of 1st stage in vacuum. Engine Cycle: Open. Feed Method: single turbopump feeding two gimballed chambers. Diameter is per chamber.
