Russians have a pretty crappy track record when it comes to rockets.
This is not the conventional belief so do tell us more.
They arnt so bad now, but in the past, wow, shockingly bad.
Considering where they started from after the war and the fact that the US grabbed most of the German rocket scientist whereas the Russians got some
rocket engineers the conventional wisdom is that they did better under the circumstances than the US did as proven by their initial successes in space
and rocket launches which they pretty much kept up for the duration of the cold war....
They definitely got the hang of it now.
Yes and so much so that despite the country being essentially financially ruined they grabbed the vast majority of commercial space launches from the
US after the end of the cold war.... I really do not understand where you are coming from or what could motivate your post other than total
ignorance. I am however willing to listen.....
