China has successfully finished its first joint hot-fire test of a domestically-developed liquid oxygen and kerosene engine, Xinhua reported on July 19.

The engine is expected to be used in China's next generation carrier rocket, according to its developer, the No.6 Research Institute of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC).

A number of innovative technologies were used in the development of the engine to substantially raise its reliability and performance. For instance, special take-off and acceleration technologies were adopted to help reduce the weight of the rocket, thus making it more powerful.
