The '''Rockomax X200-16 Fuel Tank''' is a [[liquid fuel tank]] with a propellant reserve of 1600 units. Before version 0.17 it was known as '''FL-T16 Fuel Tank'''. It can provide fuel to liquid fuel engines, such as the [[RE-L10 "Poodle" Liquid Fuel Engine]], attached beneath it.

Its 1600 units can power a single [[LV-909 "Terrier" Liquid Fuel Engine]] for 452 seconds on full thrust.
The FL-T16 Fuel Tank is a [[Liquid Fuel]] tank available only in the paid version. Like the [[FL-T32 Fuel Tank|FL-T32]], it can power the LV-series Liquid Fuel Engines. It provides thrust for a short duration that may be extended by stacking multiple fuel tanks on top of each other. It can be attached to radial decouplers and the sides of other fuel tanks.

Unlike the [[RT-B20 Solid Fuel Booster]], the amount of thrust can be dictated by the user, with varying severity in and out of the atmosphere of [[Kerbin]].

{{Quote|The T16 tank had some difficulty being accepted in the spacecraft engineering world, because most rocket builders had trouble overcoming their urges to squee at the "cute little fuel tank".

The Rockomax X200-16 Fuel Tank is a liquid fuel tank with a propellant reserve of 1600 units. Before version 0.17 it was known as FL-T16 Fuel Tank. It can provide fuel to liquid fuel engines, such as the RE-L10 "Poodle" Liquid Fuel Engine, attached beneath it.

Its 1600 units can power a single LV-909 "Terrier" Liquid Fuel Engine for 452 seconds on full thrust.

Product description

After many, many studies, Rockomax engineers found that the space program does indeed have a use for a tank half the size of the X200-32. No refunds.
