The '''LV-1R Liquid Fuel Engine''' is the radial version of the [[LV-1 Liquid Fuel Engine]]. Just like its stack-mounted counterpart, it has paired with the LV-1 the lowest in-game thrust for a [[liquid fuel]]ed engine. Only the [[PB-ION Electric Propulsion System]] has a lower thrust. It also has a low [[specific impulse]] and [[thrust-to-weight ratio]]. The radial configuration allows for a greater variety of mounting points. Unlike the LV-1, this has a proper fuel gauge.

The LV-1R Liquid Fuel Engine is the radial version of the LV-1 Liquid Fuel Engine. Just like its stack-mounted counterpart, it has paired with the LV-1 the lowest in-game thrust for a liquid fueled engine. 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. Unlike the LV-1, this has a proper fuel gauge.

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.
