The Hawk Engine is a high thrust, low efficiency engine, normally used in the first stage of a rocket. It's the first stage counterpart to the Valiant Engine, and the smaller version of the Titan Engine.
The engine burns 5 tons of kerolox in 7.5 seconds. On Earth, it can lift up to 115 tons.
The Hawk Engine, previously named RB-48 Liquid Fuel Engine, was the one of the first two engines in Spaceflight Simulator, the other one being the Valiant Engine.
- This engine likely burns kerolox (kerosene and liquid oxygen), because kerolox powered engines give off an opaque plume.
- The engine is likely based off of the real life Merlin 1D engine.
