The 24-77 "Twitch" Liquid Fuel Engine is a small, radially mounted liquid fuel engine.
|“|| Tiny engine! But very useful, good for craft where larger radial engines won't fit. Although, you may need more of them to lift larger payloads.

The Twitch is used to provide thrust to a rocket. It is great for small probe landers because it has a high thrust-to-weight ratio. While it can be radially attached without a structural part and can be used to fit landing legs, it is less powerful and efficient than the 48-7S "Spark" Liquid Fuel Engine (though it is 50 kg lighter).
As of version 1.7 this engine has two textures that can be switched in the editor.
- Mass decreased from 0.09 to 0.08
- Atmospehric Isp increased from 270 to 275
- New model and texture
- Added Gray and Orange variant
- entryCost decreased from 3000 to 920
- Cost decreased cost from 400 to 230
- Atmospehric Isp increased from 250 to 270
- Cost increased from 240 to 480 (and made meaningful)
- Initial Release
