Description

This Space Shuttle is an improvement of my last one as the last one has low payload capacity.

This Shuttle is also way more easy to fly than the last one and I’ve optimized it’s gliding ability as I tested the orbiter on my Shuttle Carrier Aircraft first.

Here is my Shuttle Carrier Aircraft : https://kerbalx.com/Conky/Shuttle-Carrier-Aircraft

The flight profile is easy, start the main engines at 75 % until the SRBs burn out, then hit full throttle and climb up to orbit. This thing can reach LKO without cargo way before the external tank runs out so, yeah. You can imagine it’s payload capacity.

For action groups
1. Toggle the Vector Engines
2. Toggle the mode of the Panthers
3. Toggle the OMS systems
4. Toggle the Airbreathing (Panther Engines)
5. Toggle the drogue chute
6. Toggle the cargo bay doors
7. Toggle half the OMS

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
