The S2-17 "Thoroughbred" 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

When Jeb asked Kerbodyne how to lift his house into space, this is what they came up with. The Thoroughbred is a truly massive solid rocket fuel booster. It is also the first booster Kerbodyne has managed to add thrust vector control to, adding surprising agility to this powerful motor.
