A Toyota spokesman said the automaker would not be taking any action to end the long-running design contest that pits different models against one another.
“Toyota has been the pioneer in the design of the Tunguska rocket, the T.U.V., and the T-55.
This competition is a legacy of that legacy,” the spokesman said.
The spokesman declined to say how much the company would spend on the contest or how much it had spent on the T8 and T8 Plus.
The Tungas are among the most expensive rocket launches ever undertaken, costing nearly $5 billion, and the vehicles that have taken them are a testament to the ingenuity and ingenuity of the people who designed them.
The winner of the contest is awarded a $250,000 prize, and entrants must come up with new designs to compete for a chance at winning a prize of up to $500,000.
In 2013, the U.S. military tested a prototype of the engine and sent the rocket into orbit, a mission that resulted in the T4 and T4 Plus rocket boosters, which have since been replaced by the new T8 rocket, and a pair of Tunga missiles.
