Default COACC rocket vs. Hard Times rocket

COACC rocket vs. Hard Times rocket: which is more "realistic"?

COACC offers a rocket for use as an engine in flying craft to permit craft to fly in space, among other things. Hard Times, of course, offers rocket engines too.

As near as I can tell, all other things being equal the Hard Times rockets burn 25 to 30 times as much fuel to achieve the same amount of thrust, they're twice as big (but roughly similar in weight), and they cost a lot less. I understand Hard Times engines were drawn pretty closely from real life - to the extent that real life examples existed.

Different rule sets, of course, but inquiring minds go where they will.
