For the new Amur missile, a system will be developed to remove it from the launch pad in case of an accident. The launch of the Amur reusable methane rocket is planned from the Vostochny cosmodrome in the Amur Region.

As the TASSIn order not to damage the launch pad, a new system will be triggered on the Amur, which will take her away from the launch pad. Another innovation: a failed engine will be switched off, while others will be boosted. In this case, the mission may be completed, but the rocket will not return to the ground.

Igor Pshenichnikov, chief expert of the Department of Advanced Programs and the Sphere Project of Roscosmos, noted that if the engine fails during launch or close to the ground, it will not be possible to launch the rocket into space. In this case, the system of withdrawal from the starting table and the safe distance will work.

The outline layout of the Amur methane-fueled rocket has been developed since October 2020. It must have a returnable stage. The sketch is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2021.
