This add-on adds one engine part

S3 KS-25x3 'Elephant' Liquid Fuel Engine

The Elephant Engine is effectively a 75% "Mammoth". It consists of three "Vectors" in a single 3.75m housing, for when a Mammoth is just overkill. As a side-bonus, mode switching in-flight will allow you to emit a plume of elephants, instead of fire. 😉
