The '''LV-1R Liquid Fuel Engine''' is the radial version of the [[LV-1 Liquid Fuel Engine]]. It still suffers from low TWR and Isp, but is again by far the lightest engine in the game. The radial configuration allows for a greater variety of mounting points. Unlike the LV-1, this has a proper fuel gauge.

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 fuel]]ed engine in the game. Only the [[IX-6315 "Dawn" Electric Propulsion System]] ion engine 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.

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 IX-6315 "Dawn" Electric Propulsion System ion engine 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.

Product description

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.
