The Oscar-B's mass ratio (5.245) is slightly worse than that of the Round-8 (5.44), and significantly worse than an FL-T or Rockomaxx tank (9). Additionally the liquid fuel volume is about 0.0077 units short thus the ratio between oxidizer and liquid fuel is not exactly matched. Also, it cannot be attached radially.

The Oscar-B Fuel Tank is a liquid fuel tank containing liquid fuel and oxidizer.

It is the second smallest liquid fuel tank in the game, carrying 40% of the capacity of the FL-T100 Fuel Tank.

Product description

The Oscar-B Fuel Tank from Probodobodyne is a compact fuel container for small space probes, or a backup tank for other small spacecraft. Do not wash in cold water, or feed after midnight.

Probodobodyne Inc

Usage

The Oscar-B Fuel Tank is a liquid fuel tank containing LF/O mix. This allows it to power liquid fuel rocket engines, like the 48-7S "Spark" Liquid Fuel Engine. If there are multiple liquid fuel tanks connected to an engine, then they will all be drained equally to power it. [1] The Oscar-B can be placed both in-line and radially mounted.

When full, one tank can power a single LV-1 "Ant" Liquid Fuel Engine for up to 310.3 seconds at full thrust, or a single 48-7S "Spark" Liquid Fuel Engine for up to 31.4 seconds at full thrust.

Despite its vastly smaller size, the Oscar-B has the same mass ratio and attachment properties as the FL-T, Rockomax, and Kerbodyne tanks, making it suitable in most-any case where marginally more propellant is required.

Trivia

  • The "Do not wash in cold water, or feed after midnight" text in the object's description is a reference to the movie Gremlins.
