Rocketdyne LOx/Kerosene rocket engine. Largest liquid rocket engine ever developed and flown. Severe combustion stability problems were solved during development and it never failed in flight. First flight 1967.

Date: 1959. Number: 65 . Thrust: 7,740.50 kN (1,740,134 lbf). Unfuelled mass: 8,391 kg (18,498 lb). Specific impulse: 304 s. Specific impulse sea level: 265 s. Burn time: 161 s. Height: 5.64 m (18.50 ft). Diameter: 3.72 m (12.20 ft).

Used in Saturn IC. The largest liquid engine rocket motor ever developed, it represented an incredible order-of-magnitude development from the 150,000 lb thrust class motor developed for Navaho, Jupiter, Thor, Atlas, Titan I, and Saturn I. Severe combustion stability problems were solved during development and it never failed in flight. Proposed for use on Nova NASA-1; Nova A-1; Nova NASA-2; Jarvis-1; Nova B-1; Nova 59-4-2; Saturn MLV 5-23L-0; Saturn S-IB-2; Nova 59-4-1; Nova 60-8-1; Saturn S-ID; Saturn S-IB-4. Saturn V S-1C Stage. Designed for booster applications. Gas generator, pump-fed.

Thrust (sl): 6,747.500 kN (1,516,898 lbf). Thrust (sl): 688,062 kgf. Engine: 8,391 kg (18,498 lb). Chamber Pressure: 70.00 bar. Area Ratio: 16. Propellant Formulation: Lox/RP-1. Thrust to Weight Ratio: 94.0680252651651. Oxidizer to Fuel Ratio: 2.27. Coefficient of Thrust vacuum: 1.815664036964. Coefficient of Thrust sea level: 1.58709260839257.
