The Rockomax "Skipper" Liquid Engine is used to provide thrust for medium sized rockets and middle stages. It is typically fueled by large diameter Liquid Fuel Tanks like the Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tank.


Put it on a rocket to make it go to space.


The smaller sibling of the Mainsail, the Skipper's power rivals that of... large cities. Combining high thrust with reasonable efficiency, this engine excels when used as a mid-stage booster.
