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

The JIb and JIIb are 2.5m launch vehicles with 3.75m fairing covers for wide loads. The 2.5m decoupler is retained.

Description from Joolian II follows:

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 3.75m 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 2.5m fairing as Joolian II.
