The Advanced Reaction Wheel Module, Large is a large diameter reaction wheel meant to provide torque to a craft. Extra torque means that the player's spaceship will rotate faster when ordered to, resulting in a more nimble feel to the craft. The Advanced Reaction Wheel Module, Large is the size 2 reaction wheel. It is expensive, relatively heavy, and provides a very large amount of torque compared to the other reaction wheels.
|| After many years of research, STEADLER Corps rocket engineers discovered that large flywheels were necessary to keep large ships under control. The "Advanced Reaction Wheel Module, Large" addresses that issue by its use of patented Large Flywheels™ to provide "More Torque" (patent pending). STEADLER promptly dismissed all criticism concerning the necessity of so much research work, stating that 'it only sounds so simple now that we've figured it out'. Critics remain skeptical, but none can disagree that this module does indeed pack a lot more punch than previous models. It also needs a lot more power, but STEADLER is currently carrying out intense research work on why that is.
- No longer has SAS functionality - now provides only torque
- Torque increased from 20 to 30
- Cost reduced from 2200 to 2100
- Reduced mass from 0.5 to 0.2 tons.
- This part only adds SAS functionality now (no torque)
- (Undocumented) Mass reduced from 0.8 to 0.5 tons.
