Description

Minotaur 2 is a drone space plane with a mk2 cargo bay capable of reach münar orbit (if flown very very good). It uses no R.A.P.I.E.R. engines because… well, i haven’t unlocked them yet in my campaign.

So I had the necessity to develop a spaceplane capable of really long range without them to fulfill a contract. It features 3 different sets of engines for the 3 stages of flight: first it has 4xWhiplash for the atmospheric flight (until 25km), then 2xSwivel to reach orbit altitude where the atmosphere is too thin, last a single Nerv engine for (eventually) circularization and all the orbit maneuvers. Keep RCS active during all flight the liquid fuel engines will cause it to rotate

p.s. it used to have a mk1 cockpit but it kept exploding during reentry.

I realiy like it.

A stock aircraft called Minotaur 2. Built with 114 of the finest parts, its root part is advSasModule.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.5.
