A stock rocket called 1t Launcher. Built with 46 of the finest parts, its root part is probeCoreOcto2, its weight at launch is 19.0 t, it costs 22,652 funds.

*Replace Payload with your payload weighing upto 1 ton.

*Full Throttle + SAS at launch.

*At 5km start turning east; hold W until you reach 70°

*After MEKO set thrust to 0 and separate, switch to first stage

*Unlock middle tank , point retrograde on the horizon, initiate boost back burn

(Trajectories is helpful for the boost back and stage recovery is needed to put payload in orbit and recover first stage due to ascent trajectory not allowing enough time for landing and second stage burn.)

*Switch back to second stage, stage fairing, and burn at an inclined prograde vector to keep your time to ap as low and constant as possible.

*After circularization and payload deployment setup a maneuver to land back at KSC. there is no passive power generation on the second stage so hibernation may be necessary.

Warranty void if exposed to simulation.
