Don't think they got the pressure wanted.

nominal up to 14 sec, then something goes wrong. End result is a burn through in the engine. Last images in the video show the result. They didn't sound that much worried about it and could be easy enough to rebuild for other tests. So that might mean another static test with a pressure system, before a pumped version is tested.

Quote
Today at 1400 the minutes were TM65 start signal for the third time. All valves and primer functioned as they should. The engine got propellant at a record high feed pressure.

The ignition was nominal.

Then wrecked TM65. It was not melting, it was not an explosion, but the implosion of the rear portion of the inner casing of the engine. Action does it look like new, but the nozzle inside is folded.

It was a structural collapse of the lightest part of the nozzle. One area that we have not actually seen as critical until relatively recently.

Design Analysis of the new large engine have shown that this area is very hard structurally overloaded.
