Caption: Rocket motor. A preserved example of the RD-214 rocket motor, used to power the Soviet R-12 missile. Designed by Valentin Glushko, the RD-214 consists of four chambers fed by a kerosene-type fuel and dinitrogen tetroxide as oxidiser. It produced a thrust of 730 kN (kilonewtons) over a burn time of 108 seconds. The R-12 missile was an intermediate-range missile known to NATO as the SS-4 Sandal and first flew on 22 June 1957. It was the type of missile deployed to Cuba during the missile crisis of 1962.
