Hello, I'm interested in knowing which is the rocket engine of all that have been constructed to date that has major thrust
The first in my list is the RD-170, that was used in the Energia launch vehicle, and is still used in the Zenith rocket. The RD-170 rocket engine has a nominal thrust of 7904490 N.
In second position I have the F-1 rocket engine, used in the Saturn V.
The F-1 has a nominal thrust of 6770193 N.
There has been constructed other rocket engine with greater thrust?
