The FL-R25 RCS Fuel Tank stores monopropellant for a spaceship's RCS.

Usage

The fuel tank provides fuel for all RCS thrusters of the ship. There is no need to place the thrusters directly on the tank. If there are several RCS fuel tanks the lowest will be used first to avoid jettisoning full tanks while preserving empty ones. Similarly, RCS tanks are emptied radially from the outside in. Within a stage, radial position takes precedence over vertical.

Description

These fuel tanks monopropellant for RCS thrusters. New advances in plumbing technology made it possible to route RCS lines to any point in the ship. So unlike liquid fuel tanks, RCS Fuel tanks can be placed anywhere.

The nonsensical line is what the part.cfg file actually says.

Changes

0.18.2
  • Capacity increased to 100, description changed.
0.18
  • Retextured, capacity decreased to 25
0.16
  • Due to part rebalancing, mass reduced from 0.9 to 0.5, empty mass from 0.15 to 0.1, fuel units from 250 to 200 (This does make the name slightly less meaningful)
0.14.0
  • RCS Fuel Tanks now drain symmetrically if placed using symmetry.
0.11.0
  • Part introduced
