The LV-1R "Spider" Liquid Fuel Engine is the radial version of the LV-1 "Ant" Liquid Fuel Engine. It has, together with the LV-1, the lowest thrust for a liquid fueled engine in the game. Only the PB-ION Electric Propulsion System has a lower thrust. It also has a low specific impulse and moderate thrust-to-weight ratio. The radial configuration allows for a greater variety of mounting points.
|“||Adapted to appease engineers who were outraged at the puniness of the LV-1, the radial mounted LV-1R offers an appealing solution: "Just add more". Point away from face.||”|
