    80,000 horsepower BLOODHOUND Rocket Animation


    Inside the BLOODHOUND Hybrid rocket system, the largest in Europe. At 4 meters (12 feet) long, 45.7 cm (18 inches) in diameter and weighing 450 kg, BLOODHOUND's rocket is the largest hybrid ever designed in Europe and biggest to be fired in the UK for 20 years. In its ultimate form it will generate c. 27,500lbs of thrust, equivalent to c. 80,000 horsepower (hp) or the power of 95 Formula 1 cars.
