"Spiral" system. Soviet version of the reusable spacecraft system, developed in the 60s and 70s of the last century. Consisted of a booster aircraft, one rocket stage and an orbital aircraft / lander. prototypes of parts of the system were built. The Ministry of Defense even received an application for orbital tests of the space module, but was refused.

The project was closed in favor of the Buran project, which then seemed less risky.

In the subject of space, we can mention the Soviet orbital rocket ship "Buran". It made only one flight in 1988, after which its further use was discontinued by the decision of the Council of Chief Designers in 1993, due to an abrupt, almost complete cessation of funding.
