Description

Cute, but a Challenge

Like my wife, amirite?

The smallest of the NukeWing concept of big wing / Liquid Fuel only. Use those big wings to make sure you get plenty of vertical speed during the later half of the ascent. You have to stand on that one wimpy Nuke for a while after the Jets burn out.

Craft by Exothermos
Built for 1.2.2

Climb on jets at 25 degrees to 12,000. Shallow-out and activate nuke for speed run. When Jets begin to flame-out pull up to 25 degrees to get a big lift bonus. Burn until apoapsis is reached. Circularization burn above 60k for best efficency. Reenter at 45 degrees.

1) Jets and Intakes
