Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template is used exclusively for flown rocket engines used on attempted suborbital non-military applications. Orbital missions that failed are not counted. Military vehicles are not valid. But any other flights directly related to airplanes whether as a main engine or a source of auxiliary thrust. It is not intended to link missiles, orbital launch vehicles, sounding rockets, nor military rockets. Sub-orbital airplanes like the SpaceShipTwo's RocketMotorTwo is acceptable.


NO acceptable:

  • Military rockets and missiles. Example: any ICBM. The list would be too extensive and thus is better left to a different template.
  • Orbital missions that failed. Example: Soyuz 18a.
  • Testing or other sub-orbital missions of orbital launch vehicles that were intended to be sub-orbital. Example: Angara-1.2pp and ASSET
  • Non sub-orbital missions that failed and somehow reached space. The mission has to be intended to be a suborbital mission.


Place {{Suborbital rocket engines}} at the end of an article, but above any categories.

Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Suborbital rocket engines|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Suborbital rocket engines|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Suborbital rocket engines|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
