Description

This is the second largest engine currently available, and one of two requiring installation on the interior of the ship. Producing 2,000,000 thrust, it provides around seven times the thrust of the next engine, the largest externally mounted, which produces 280,000 thrust. To operate this (1) engine at full power, some possibilities include one large hydrogen generator, eight small hydrogen generators, or eight charged small batteries among other design choices.
