The '''LV-1 "Ant" Liquid Fuel Engine''' is used to provide thrust to a rocket and is currently the weakest liquid fueled engine available. As of [[1.0]], it has extremely poor specific impulse in atmosphere, but decent specific impulse in vacuum; in combination with its low mass and tiny size, this makes it a good choice for small satellites. There is a [[Radial size|radial]] derivative of this engine called [[LV-1R Liquid Fuel Engine]] featuring a similar design and vacuum thrust but very different Isp profile at a slightly higher cost.
== Product description ==
|What is this, an engine for ants?}}
This is a reference to the movie ''[[w:Zoolander|Zoolander]]''.
== Changes ==
* Specific impulse at sea level reduced from 85 to 80.
* Mass, cost, thrust, and fuel consumption decreased; specific impulse changed. Fuel gauge added. Given proper nickname.
* Cost increased from 150 to 350 (and made meaningful)
* Thrust increased from 1.5 to 4 kN.
* Initial release
