The '''Rockomax Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank''' provides fuel to attached [[liquid fuel engine]]s, and was the largest [[liquid fuel tank]] available until the release of the [[Kerbodyne S3-14400 Tank]]. The appearance of the tank, including the rust-like orange colour is inspired by [[w:Space_Shuttle_external_tank|Space Shuttle External Tank]]. However, unlike the real life counterpart containing liquid hydrogen as the fuel, the Jumbo-64 contains standard [[Liquid fuel|liquid fuel]] (most likely kerosene).

The '''Rockomax Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank''' (famously known as The Big Orange Tank for its default appearance prior to version 1.4) provides fuel to attached [[liquid fuel engine]]s, and was the largest [[liquid fuel tank]] prior to [[0.23.5]]. The appearance of the tank, including the rust-like orange colour, is inspired by the [[w:Space Shuttle external tank|Space Shuttle external tank]]. However, unlike the real life counterpart containing liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen, the Jumbo-64 contains the unspecified [[liquid fuel]] and [[oxidizer]].
  
As of {{Check version|0.23}}, this tank does not transfer heat effectively. Engines attached directly to it and running at full throttle (especially [[Mainsail]]s or [[LV-N]]s) risk overheat. Throttling down, or placing a fuel tank (such as the [[Rockomax X200-8 Fuel Tank]]) or structural component in between the engines and the Jumbo-64 fuel tank will fix this. Another workaround for this problem is to stack two [[Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tank]]s in place of a Jumbo-64. Together they have exactly the same mass, fuel capacity, drag and dimensions but different part count which might impact on the performance of the game.

Before [[0.23.5]], it was the heaviest part, when fueled, and the largest tank. Both records go the [[Kerbodyne S3-14400 Tank]] with its release. Additionally the [[LFB KR-1x2 "Twin-Boar" Liquid Fuel Engine|LFB KR-1x2]] was released in 0.23.5 which can store the same amount of fuel and provide additional engines. So even between all tanks with a large radius or smaller, the Jumbo-64 tank is not the heaviest part and shares the record of the largest tank of that radius with the LFB KR-1x2. Of the tanks introduced in 0.23.5, it's only larger than [[Kerbodyne S3-3600 Tank]] which is the smallest of the new tanks.
  
The Mainsail produces less heat in 0.22. Its heat production was lowered from 500 to 400, reducing the chance of overheating. The LV-N will no longer overheat under this tank as of 0.22. The Aerospike has a higher maximum temperature as of 0.22, also reducing its overheat risk.

The Rockomax Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank (famously known as The Big Orange Tank for its default appearance prior to version 1.4) provides fuel to attached liquid fuel engines, and was the largest liquid fuel tank prior to 0.23.5. The appearance of the tank, including the rust-like orange colour, is inspired by the Space Shuttle external tank. However, unlike the real life counterpart containing liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen, the Jumbo-64 contains the unspecified liquid fuel and oxidizer.

Comparison

Before 0.23.5, it was the heaviest part, when fueled, and the largest tank. Both records go the Kerbodyne S3-14400 Tank with its release. Additionally the LFB KR-1x2 was released in 0.23.5 which can store the same amount of fuel and provide additional engines. So even between all tanks with a large radius or smaller, the Jumbo-64 tank is not the heaviest part and shares the record of the largest tank of that radius with the LFB KR-1x2. Of the tanks introduced in 0.23.5, it's only larger than Kerbodyne S3-3600 Tank which is the smallest of the new tanks.
