Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion

later all GSLVs will use the cryo engine that develops 90 kN ton of thrust, against 75 kN and they will carry 15 ton of propellant against 12.8 ton now possibly giving a longer burn time Some interesting tidbits! GSLV MkII variants (NOTE: GS2 has already contains 40 tons of propellant.) http://1.bp...

Not to imply any kind of direct competition here. 7.5 means 7.5 tonnes of thrust. 7.5 tonnes of thrust = 75 kN of thrust CE20 generates 20 tonne...
