Designer: Glushko. Developed in: 1972-1975. Used on stages: RLA-1. Used on launch vehicles: RLA-120, RLA-135, RLA-150. Propellants: Lox/Kerosene Thrust(vac): 1,300,000 kgf. Chambers: 4. Country: USSR. Status: Design 1972-1974. References: 367 .

In 1972 to 1974 Glushko proposed lox/kerosene engines for the RLA series launch vehicles and the UR-700M Mars booster with a lift-off thrust of 300 tonnes per chamber. The RLA version would use four chambers for a total thrust of 1200 tonnes. Following rejection of the RLA and the adoption of the Energia design, this chamber design was 'down-sized' to 200 tonnes thrust for Energia.
