Description

Vampire II is a spaceplane disegned specifically to fly on Duna.

A single aerospike engine powers this spaceplane which is part of my Project Jason for the exploration of Duna. The cargo bay hosts toroidal fuel tanks end a full science compendium. Capable of a single landing and back-to-orbit from even the lowest point on Duna (before re-fueling). A set of 6 parachutes is provided for easier landing. Nota Bene: gravity on Duna is low, so you will bounce a lot if you try to land with the same speed as on Kerbin.

I suggest a crew of one scientist (for resetting experiments) and one engineer (for parachute refolding). The spaceship is provided with

Docking port on the bottom to attach to the transfer vehicle -Jason I, in my case.

]∆v ≥ 1927 m/s (because of atmospheric flight in Duna)

Launch vehicle not included.

A stock aircraft called Vampire II. Built with 82 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2Cockpit.Standard.
