Energomash to deliver 3 rocket engines to U.S. customers
MOSCOW. June 19 (Interfax) - NPO Energomash will deliver three RD-180 rocket engines to U.S. customers, Roscosmos said on Wednesday.

RD-181 engines are delivered to Orbital ATK, also a U.S.-based firm, which installs them on Antares rockets used to send Cygnus automated cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station.
