Usage

The R-11 'Baguette' External 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 Baguette must be radially mounted.

When full, one tank can power a single LV-1 "Ant" Liquid Fuel Engine for up to 419.0 seconds at full thrust, or a single 48-7S "Spark" Liquid Fuel Engine for up to 42.3 seconds at full thrust.

Although it is radially mounted, the Baguette appears 0.625m in diameter, equal to other tiny parts. By using the move tool in the editor, it is possible to move the tank so that it appears in-line with a tiny stack.

Variants

As of version 1.10 this fuel tank has two variants that can be switched in the editor.

Changes
