A Hybrid engine system uses a solid fuel and a liquid oxidiser.


Pros:
As one component is solid the amount of piping is reduced, the propellants are separated, so hybrids can be throttled and stop-started.
The way the fuel burns also makes hybrids safer.
However, hybrids are less flexible than bi-liquids.
They require more development work.
They must be tailored to the specific mission.
Cons:
