Description

IMPORTANT NOTE:
This version of the craft doesn’t include the Eve lander and the other stuff in the cargo bays, because the whole craft had >700 parts which can cause really low framerates, even on good PCs. A version with everything from the video inside can be found here: https://kerbalx.com/Eric_Hamann/Valkyrie-with-extras-Eve-lander-Duna-rover-etc

A Single Stage to Anywhere rocket that can land everywhere in the solar system (except Eve of course). It can carry 60 passengers and around 50 tons of cargo (maybe even more, I managed to land on Minmus for the initial refuel with 50 tons of cargo). With a light Eve lander that will land on a high spot on Eve, you can land on every planet and moon in the solar system in one launch!

NOTES FOR USING THE VALKYRIE:
- Use the action groups for controlling the engines
- Launch with only the vectors and turn on the nuclear engines at ~20km. Depending on your cargo, the TWR when engaging the nuclear engines can be REALLY low, so make sure your apoapsis is pretty high when you run out of oxidizer (100km should be enough) and keep the thrust angled downwards to end up in a ~110-130km high orbit around Kerbin
- Action group 6 starts the surface harvesting and converts ore to LF+Ox, for more control about the refueling, the small Convert-o-Tron is inside the craft, just zoom in and look around a bit and you will find it
