The '''LV-1 Liquid Fuel Engine''' is used to provide thrust to a rocket, and is currently the weakest liquid fueled engine available. It has a relatively poor impulse compared to other liquid fueled engines but is useful on small satellites due to its size.

The LV-1 Liquid Fuel Engine is used to provide thrust to a rocket, and is currently the weakest liquid fueled engine available. It has a relatively poor impulse compared to other liquid fueled engines but is useful on small satellites due to its size.

No fuel bar appears next to LV-1 engines when they are active, so the general resource widget is the best way to see how much fuel is left.

Description

What is this, an engine for ants?

Trivia

The quote in the part description is a reference to the movie Zoolander.
