Description:

The thrust-module-G2v1 is an 'engine-module' with 5 seperate engines (burning chemical fuel). Vector-control (engine nozzle gimbaling) is not implemented, for safety and stability reasons. The module is supposed to be located at the 'rear end' of the superstructure, as an 'attachment engine compartment' that will thrust the superstructure forward.

The module has 13 docking ports, all designed to accomodate fuel modules.

The picture shows the thrust-module-G2v1 in earth orbit during testflight trials.
