The Rockomax X200-16 Fuel Tank formerly known as FL-T16 Fuel Tank provides fuel to liquid fuel engines, like the Rockomax Poode Engine, attached beneath it.

Usage

The FL-T16 Fuel Tank is a liquid fuel tank available only in the paid version. Like the FL-T32, it can power any Liquid Fuel Engines. It provides thrust for a moderate 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.

With a propellant reserve of 1600 liters, one tank can power a single LV-909 engine for 470-612 seconds on full thrust.

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. One can use full thrust, with a higher chance of overheat during atmospheric burning, and optimal thrust during low Mün orbit, and minimal thrust for course corrections during high Mün orbit.

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.

The standard tank of the X200 series, the -16 tank is a compact solution for all your fueling needs.

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". This initial reaction was only put aside when the amount of fiery explosions in assembly areas became so high, strict guidelines were put in place to prohibit "teasing the fuel containers". The T16 Tank now is widely used in several space programs, especially in conjunction with the LV-909 engine.
