The PB-X50R Xenon Container is a radially attachable xenon gas tank for the PB-ION Electric Propulsion System that contains 400 units of xenon. The part was added in version 0.21 of KSP.

Product description

The X50R is a small-volume Xenon container ideal for tuning the operating life of ion-driven spacecraft.

Trivia

  • The PB-X150 Xenon Container by Probodobodyne Inc. (introduced in version 0.18) is very similarly named but the PB-X50R is listed as "Found lying by the side of the road" rather than manufactured by Probodobodyne.
  • This part was originally from a mod called KSPX. The developer of KSPX eventually joined Squad and the KSP dev team and many parts from KSPX are now included in the stock game.
