Ariane 3

Evolution of the Ariane launch rocket keep on going and strapping shrimp rocket booster to an Ariane 2 gave this one the 3 denomination, the engineer back at KSC where over the Mun (well not really however they kept on dreaming about Mun) to be able to load 3 tonnes of Jeb junkyard crap onto the fairing.


As per the IRL Ariane 3 the solid rocket booster are started a few second after launch so don’t forget to stage them a few second after take off or edit the staging and drop them in the first stage.


Ascent profile: Go straight up until you reach 250m/s than push angle to 80* degrees until you ditch the 1st stage. Than push to 60* and gradually to 40* until you reach an apoapsis of 85km. Turn off engine. Set manoeuvre node if desired and circularize. You should be left with around 200m/s DeltaV


Happy flying!
