Can carry 18 tonnes to low Kerbin Orbit, but works better with lighter payloads. Be sure to strut your payload into the bay!

Climb to ~8.5km, you should try maintain an airspeed around 200 m/s. At altitude, level out and accelerate.

Continue a gentle climb. 1,300 m/s should be easily attainable on air-breathing mode, around 20km.

Once airspeed begins to drop, press 2 to change RAPIER mode (your middle RAPIER will change automatically, don’t worry about it).

Close intakes with 3 and turn off Whiplashes with 1, bring your nose up to 45 degrees and burn full throttle until you reach 30km.

Finish the climb under 75% power pointing prograde until your apoapsis reaches space.

Transfer all your fuel to the center tank before re-entry, or you will die.

A stock aircraft called Compensator. Built with 150 of the finest parts, its root part is adapterMk3-Size2.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.2.
