First off, the Shuttle on this energia is not mine its a slightly modified version of haidebiany's amazing Space shuttle.
Desc.
This is a replica of the soviet Energia-Buran which was the soviet copy of the shuttle. Energia, the rocket portion, flew a total of two times while the Buran the Shuttle portion flew a total of one times. The energia has four side boosters powered by RD-170's (which have all the correct stats) and the core is powered by four RD-120's(also has all the correct stats). The center core is fueled by LH2 while the boosters are fueled by Kerosene. the cargobay has a payload dummy which is a keralox fuel tank that fills up the entire payload pay to give you delta V with a full payload bay

    @yopo well, yeah, but the shuttle was just trying to be the best it can in the case of physics, and physics is very precise. The shuttle was great, the soviets wanted something just as good. Physics wouldn’t let many changes be made. Even though it looks like a copy of the space shuttle, it’s not the soviets fault.

    @Icantthinkofaname But it is mostly a straight-up copy of NASA's work on the Space Shuttle, the Russians admitted that they copied a large percentage of the designs from NASA because NASA released all of the design blueprints and documentation to the public, since they're a publicly-funded, non-profit, non-classified, institution that worked closely with public universities in the US to develop the Shuttle. So, really the majority of physics calculations and technical advancements were already developed by NASA, the Soviet program benefited greatly from analyzing all publicly-available Space Shuttle documents. They added some impressive new features, and they could do this since NASA did all of the difficult groundwork beforehand.

    I take issue with you calling this a soviet "copy" of the space shuttle, this was an improvement.
