This is a Stock Linear engine ive developed
based off of the XRS-2200 linear aerospike
developed by Aerojet. this is a powerful LH2 liner aerospike which ive been thinking of making for a while, now that ive finally got around to it i ight think of making an X-33 :).

Thrust: 3,700 Kn
Isp: 330s SL
PowerCycle: Staged
Fuel: HydroLOX

(Stock for Kell-chan lol :))

    Awesome engine, an X-33 or Venture star utilizing it would be neat to see!

    @MarioG I wish that interactions might happen

    because over expansion on normal belled engines are dangerous and under expansion causes instability that's why the linear aerospike was made to counter the instability caused by the under expansion.

    @Kell it looks weird tho since the plume does not interact with the wall

    @Shoot2kill @AtlantikWall45 @MarioG as altitude increases, air pressure decreases, thus causing under expansion, not over expansion.

    @Shoot2kill That's why Linear Aerospike is made to counter the Under Expansion and dont go to over expansion

    I mean the only real problem I can find with it is that as the altitude increases the over expansion makes it look derpy lol
