Which orbital rocket model has the largest number of successful consecutive missions? Active and inactive models.
Falcon 9 just reached 77.
Delta II reached 100.
Is there any other model with a better performance?
I am asking for the first three places.
Delta II might be the first but I am interested in number 2 and 3 too.
Rockets like Long March 3B and Long March 3C are considered the same model.
Mission is not the same as launch. The Falcon 9 - Amos 6 mission exploded before flight.
If you count missions, then Falcon 9 has 77 consecutive successful missions.
If you strictly count only launches, then Falcon 9 has 86 consecutive successful launches.
Yet the majority of people mean missions when they say launches. Because the Amos 6 mission exploded before launch but still it was a planned launch which obviously failed. And I go with that
