Contains a ION RCS thrusters and Pulsed Plasma Thrusters RCS pack of parts. These parts used to be distributed as part of my AmpYear mod. But due to popular demand I have split them off to a separate parts pack.

Outdated Mod

This mod is not known to work with the latest version of Kerbal Space Program. Proceed with caution.

Information Changelog Stats

Pulsed Plasma Thruster RCS.


Ion RCS Thrusters that use Xenon-gas and electricity for incredibly efficient RCS. Some limitations:
Has half the Isp of normal Ion engines.
One quarter of the thrust of normal monopropellant RCS thrusters.
Available in one-way linear thruster, 4-way ION RCS block and 4-way 45degrees ION RCS block.
Integrated to TechTree at ionPropulsion.

Pulsed Plasma Thrusters RCS
Each thruster contains a fixed amount of Teflon and uses this along with Electric Charge for incredibly efficient propulsion for small craft or maneuvering.
Some limitations:
Has roughly quarter the ISP of normal RCS thrusters.
One eighth of the thrust of normal monopropellant RCS thrusters.
Only linear thrusters are available.
Integrated to TechTree at advFlightControl.
