As of version 1.4.1 this engine has two models that can be switched in the editor.
- Despite being claimed to have high vacuum efficiency, the records are actually false when you compare this with the Wolfhound, which is far more efficient, and realize that the 2 engines’ stats are actually swapped, especially if you factor in their real-world counterparts for comparison. Fortunately, this only affects realism and therefore the Wolfhound is higher up the Tech Tree than this engine.
The RE-I2 was inspired by the American J-2 engine.
