MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. Russia has created a fuel formula that will help aircraft exceed a speed of Mach 5, Deputy Defense Minister, Army General Dmitry Bulgakov said on Tuesday.
The deputy defense minister said Russia is currently developing fuel for hypersonic aircraft.
"The recipe has been created and the energy accumulated in this fuel will help our aircraft exceed the speed of Mach 5," he said.
As the Russian Armed Forces are celebrating Fuel Service Day on Tuesday, the deputy defense minister also told reporters about the development of fuel in Russia for a new generation of long-range cruise missiles for the Air Force and the Navy. These developments are the prerogative of the 25th State Research Institute of Chemmotology, the deputy defense minister said.
Specialists of this institute have used aluminum nano-particles to develop a number of rocket fuel components with a density and energy capacity boosted by almost 20%, which helps increase the payload, he said.
Besides, the institute continues developing raw materials alternative to oil, he said. Specifically, the institute is testing a sample of synthetic oil and aviation fuel based on natural gas and research is underway to obtain motor fuel from coal, the deputy defense minister said.
