Joolian II - 100t to LKO w/ recovery of 3rd stage

The second in the Jool series launch vehicles allows payloads of up to 100t to reach orbit at 150,000km above Kerbin. The central core is fitted with a probe controller and parachutes for recovery. Delicate packages can be shielded from drag without modifying the payload, thanks to the integrated 2.5m fairing. The fairing base houses the recovery core and SAS wheel under the decoupler if no extra fairing protection is necessary.

The 4 outer cores are asparagus staged through fuel flow priority and coupler crossfeeed. The North and South facing cores drop away first, to facilitate an Eastward(90 degrees) gravity turn without rotation in lower atmosphere.

On the Joolian II, the longer North and South cores usually detach before a more aerodynamic nose becomes beneficial.

Fairing settings: 2-sided clamshell deploy, max ejection force by default.
Available with 3.75m fairing as Joolian II b.
Joolian Series Hangar

Built with 52 of the finest parts, its root part is decoupler1-2.
