4 An Abandoned Soviet Stand for Testing Rocket Engines

An Abandoned Soviet Stand for Testing Rocket Engines

Posted on June 1, 2014 by tim

This stand is for testing rocket engines and is situated in the Saratovskaya region. A rocket engine was installed on it and was worked in different modes.

During the test, the whole team of engineers was in the observation post, which had thick walls of reinforced concrete. The entire process was controlled remotely. A special cooling system was a supporting structure of the stand. The water was circulated through the pipes to the tank with water which was  located downstairs.
