The F3S0 "Shrimp" Solid Fuel Booster (also known as an SRB) is a solid rocket booster used to provide a short burst of additional thrust to a rocket. It comes as a single unit. The engine and fuel tank are one single part which means that it isn't possible to increase the burn time for it by adding more fuel tanks.

Product description

Kerbodyne was asked to deliver a small, high efficiency solid fuel booster and that's just what they did. While it may just look like a someone welded a rocket nozzle onto a scuba tank, some serious technology went into making this motor.
