Wasn't the N1 ~4500T, whereas the Saturn V was ~3000T? Doesn't that mean the N1 should have a greater payload capability, as it used more efficient engines like the NK33, over the RocketdyneF-1? Or did ALL of the stages run on Kerolox? If they did then that explains it, but still, I seriously thoought it had a higher payload capacity.

Anyway, I voted Buran.

Soyuz.

Since the 1960s and still going on.

Maybe not so much strong....

N-1 had all Kerolox. The prime reason they didn't get to the moon with a manned mission was that they couldn't conquer Hydrogen.

Why buran? It only had one mission, unmanned too.
