Description:

The fuel-module#1 is a 'fuel-module' that can store high fuel-loads for long-duration missions. The module has 4 large seperate fuel-storage-tanks, to minimize fuel-loss in the event of a leak.
The module supports continued module extension in 2 space-directions.

The picture shows the fuel-module#1 in earth orbit during testflight trials.

Pilots Operating Manual:

Major warnings:

None

 
Advisories:

Thrust-power is limited, so release or tug the module as close to its final location as safely possible and only use attitude thrust for final assembly-dock procedure.

 
Current list of 'proposed handling' for various scenarios:

T/O
As payload on launch vehicle

Landing
Not advised/no current proposed procedures

Docking
#1:Request docking clearance (not needed for module assembly dockings)
#2:Approach head-on and aim the HUD 'victor'-targetsights on center of target dockring by linear-thruster movement.
