KS-50
Glushko LOx/Kerosene rocket engine. Experimental. Development 1948. Subscale versions of a radical new engine design. This featured a flat-plate injector, cylindrical combustion chamber, and a 60 atmosphere chamber pressure.

AKA: Lilliput. Status: Development 1948. Date: 1948.

From 1947 the German team at Khimki was completing build of ten KS-59 'Lilliput' subscale versions of a radical new engine design. This featured a flat-plate injector, cylindrical combustion chamber, and a 60 atmosphere chamber pressure. The first engine was completed at the end of 1948. These were conceived by the Germans to test the design planned for the G-4/R-14. From the summer of 1949 to April 1950 100 tests were made of the engine. Although primarily intended to prove the use of Lox/Kerosene propellants, a wide range of propellants were tested, including exotic fluorine compounds and suspended beryllium hydride fuels. The Lilliput endured them all.

Chamber Pressure: 61.00 bar.



Country: Russia. Propellants: Lox/Kerosene. Agency: Glushko bureau. Bibliography: 323.
