Nuri (KSLV-2) [KARI]
The Nuri (KSLV-2) is a South Korean orbital rocket. Contrary to the Naro-1 (KSLV-1) it is completely indigeniously developped at KARI.
Stage 1 of KSLV is 3.3 m in diameter and features four Kerosene and LOX fueled KRE-075 engines. Stage two is 2.6 m in diameter, uses the same fuel and oxidizer and is powered by single KRE-075 engine. Stage three is also 2.6 m in diameter and is powered by a KRE-007 engine.
The KSLV-2 is capable to put 1500 kg into a 700 km sun-syncronous orbit.
Component tests will be performed on the KSLV-2-TLV test launch in October 2018. The maiden flight of the complete KSLV-2 took place in on 21 October 2021 from Naro, but failed to reach orbit due to early shut down of stage 3.
