This SSTO isn’t pretty, but it can do just about anything.

  • The only places it can’t land are Jool and the Sun (it will land on Eve but it can’t make orbit again).
  • You can land at up to 15m/s sink rate and not break anything
  • With 3 Rhino motors, and a center located large docking port, this SSTO makes an excellent space tug
  • 3 drills save a lot of time when mining
  • Hitchhiker pod at the BOTTOM of the ship, so there is only ONE ladder to climb for EVA.
  • You can use the same ship to explore every biome on every planet except for Eve and Jool.
  • SAS and Thrusters make this ship a breeze to dock
  • A water landing is a bad idea. The bottom pod will be destroyed if you land in water. Crash instructions:
    • Make sure the wheels hit first
    • The top pods should survive, but the bottom pod will be destroyed
    • In the water, your Kerbals will be lucky to survive a 15m/s landing. On land they will probably survive a 20m/s crash. The bottom pod will be destroyed.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.3.
