Description

Dusk is a Mk3 SSTO that can definitely go to the Mun and back and maybe even Duna or Laythe if more fuel is added in place of the cargo bay. It flies quite easily into orbit due to its 12 rapiers, 2 turbo jets and 8 nukes! Yes it is slightly overkill! You can modify it if you want.

Flight profile is pretty straight forward. Gain as much speed as possible on the runway and then pitch nose up to 20-30 degrees.

Once you start to lose speed on the rapiers, pitch your nose down about 5-10 degrees. Keep it this way until around 22km. Then pitch up to 30-40 degrees and at 24-25km, switch rapier mode.

This can vary if you modify it. If you want to go to Laythe or Duna, I’d suggest adding a mk3 fuselage in place of the cargo bay and add a little more oxidizer especially if you’re going to Laythe.

Thanks!

A stock aircraft called Dusk. Built with 118 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.
