Description

(The mechjeb unit you see in pictures is not in the .craft file)

I really love this craft, it has to be one of my best creations so far. For how you think it would fly, it flies incredibly well!

Its designed in a modular form to allow for easy attachments and configurations. In the pictures you see the nose cone attachment which includes a little extra liquid fuel for SSTO missions. The .craft file includes a 5 ton dead weight as a demo for an SSTO mission payload. YES, this thing can carry 5 tons to orbit without any extra fuel besides the nose cone attachment.

With its engine set up, it has enough TWR to carry 18 tons on Kerbin while the craft itself is fully fueled. This means you could potentially use this as a skycrane. It also means you could make a new SSTO attachment that allows this thing to get into orbit with even more fuel to spare!

If you take no payload and use the SSTO nose cone attachment, and you do the orbital insertion right, you can end up with 1000+ delta v to play with. (As seen in the very dark picture)

This thing only lands vertically so be prepared! Watch my video to learn how to fly this thing and get it into orbit!

Have fun!
