The '''Kerbodyne S3-3600 Tank''' is a fuel tank with the extra large radius. It contains 18 t of [[liquid fuel]]/[[oxidizer]] mixture which is 12.5% more compared to the [[Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tank]] which contains 16 t. It has the same radius as the [[Kerbodyne S3-14400 Tank]] but masses only a quarter and is only a fourth as tall as the S3-14400 tank. This includes the dry as well as the total mass, which means that four S3-3600 can be replaced with a S3-14400 or two [[Kerbodyne S3-7200 Tank]]s without changing the height or drag.

The Kerbodyne S3-3600 Tank is a fuel tank with the extra large radius. It contains 18 t of liquid fuel/oxidizer mixture which is 12.5% more compared to the Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tank which contains 16 t. It has the same radius as the Kerbodyne S3-14400 Tank but masses only a quarter and is only a fourth as tall as the S3-14400 tank. This includes the dry as well as the total mass, which means that four S3-3600 can be replaced with a S3-14400 or two Kerbodyne S3-7200 Tanks without changing the height or drag. It isslightly taller than the Rockomax X200-16 Fuel Tank.

Usage

The S3-3600 acts as an intermediate sized tank, for fine tuning propellant amounts while staying with the size 3 parts. Alternatively, it could be used with a Skipper to provide large amounts of fuel for little part count. The mass ratio (8.2) is slightly inferior to that of the smaller tanks (9).
