General S-IC Stage (Saturn V First Stage) Diagrams
I come across many S-IC diagrams which, while interesting, are not so interesting that they necessarily merit their own separate page. I have created this page as a repository for such diagrams.
S-IC Stage from F-1 Familiarization Training Manual
The F-1 Familiarization Training Manual has a diagram of the S-IC stage; this is only natural, as the S-IC stage is the only stage in which the engine was ever mounted.
The diagram notes the overall stage dimensions as 138 feet long and 33 feet in diameter and shows the LOX tank mounted forward of the RP-1 tank, with the LOX suction lines running through the fuel tank.
The following S-IC-related information is also noted:
