It’s everything that old VII wasn’t, said Peter M. Kerman, the PR spokesman for Rambunctious Redneck Rocketry, LLC (he was sacked shortly afterwards). This design improves on the Spork VII by finally ironing out the inefficiencies to create a stable, reliable launcher. The Spork VIII is capable of dragging gigantic payloads into orbit effectively, because the engineers finally realized that the external tanks should be dropped BEFORE the main engine. This rocket is the biggest, slowest, and most tenacious lifter not only in the Spork family of rockets but in RRR’s entire catalogue. What it lacks in acceleration, it makes up for in sheer payload capacity. If you can get it off the ground, the Spork VIII can get it to space.

Approximate payload capacity: 250 tons (seven orange tanks) to Kerbin orbit.

The Spork VIII is 100% stock and built with 180 cutting-edge carbon nanotube parts.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.5.
