The Rockomax Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank provides fuel to attached liquid fuel engines, and was the largest liquid fuel tank prior to 0.23.5. The appearance of the tank, including the rust-like orange colour, is inspired by Space Shuttle external tank. However, unlike the real life counterpart containing liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen, the Jumbo-64 contains the unspecified liquid fuel and oxidizer.

Info

That's how many fuel tanks can SAFELY go on the same craft.

As of 0.23[outdated], this tank does not transfer heat effectively. Engines attached directly to it and running at full throttle (especially Mainsails or LV-Ns) risk overheat. Throttling down, or placing a fuel tank (such as the Rockomax X200-8 Fuel Tank) or structural component in between the engines and the Jumbo-64 fuel tank will fix this. Another workaround for this problem is to stack two Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tanks in place of a Jumbo-64. Together they have exactly the same mass, fuel capacity, drag, and dimensions but different part count which might impact on the performance of the game.

The RE-M3 "Mainsail" Liquid Engine produces less heat in 0.22. Its heat production was lowered from 500 to 400, reducing the chance of overheating. The LV-N "Nerv" Atomic Rocket Motor will no longer overheat under this tank as of 0.22. The T-1 Toroidal Aerospike "Dart" Liquid Fuel Engine has a higher maximum temperature as of 0.22, also reducing the risk of overheating.

There is a "01" label near the top lip of the fuel tank.

The Jumbo-64 is supposedly shipped to the Kerbal Space Center in a Mk3 Cargo Bay CRG-100.

Comparison

Before 0.23.5, it was the heaviest part, when fueled, and the largest tank. Both records go the Kerbodyne S3-14400 Tank with its release. Additionally the LFB KR-1x2 was released in 0.23.5 which can store the same amount of fuel and provide additional engines. So even between all tanks with a large radius or smaller, the Jumbo-64 tank is not the heaviest part and shares the record of the largest tank of that radius with the LFB KR-1x2. Of the tanks introduced in 0.23.5, it's only larger than Kerbodyne S3-3600 Tank which is the smallest of the new tanks.


Product description

The largest tank available from Rockomax, the Jumbo-64 holds a vast amount of fuel in a friendly orange insulated container. Contrary to popular belief, the Jumbo-64 is NOT orange flavored and should NOT be tasted.
