In January 1959, an RD-214 engine made in Perm proved its worth in the course of a testing by OKB-GDL, the development design office and a gas-dynamic research laboratory in Khimki, now known as V.P. Glushko Energomash Scientific Production Association.It was after this testing procedure that the large-scale production of liquid propellant rocket engines began.
