The Mastodon has the second-highest thrust-to-weight ratio of any liquid fuel engine in the game, trailing only the "Twin-Boar", which has the highest after subtracting away the integrated fuel tank. Because the Mastodon can be independently mounted, clusters of this engine are an ideal way to lift extremely heavy payloads, such as 5-9 mounted on the Kerbodyne Engine Cluster Adapter Tank.
|“|| Considered to be the behemoth of rocket technology, this propulsion system is the pinnacle of power.
As of version 1.4.1 this engine has three models that can be switched in the editor.
The engine was inspired by the American F-1 engine.
