The 3.8m-diameter VTVL test vehicle was powered by three 70-ton LOX/Methane Longyun (龙云/DragonCloud) engines from the private engine developer JZYJ. The engine has reached a thrust of 745kN (sea level), with a specific impulse of 293s, and a thrust-to-weight ratio of >100. The company will continue to enhance the engine's performance. Longyun engines will be used later this year for a 75km VTVL test flight and an orbital recovery test flight in 2025.
