Description

Large tanker SSTO capable of getting to LKO with 50k units of liquid fuel left. Designed to refill orbital refuelling stations but can refuel vessels directly.

Landing is a bit tricky because this craft has a high stall speed, requiring a hot landing. I try to land as early on the runway as possible and immediately activate retro thrusters (AG7), deploy parachutes (AG abort), and enable brakes. If you have Kerbal Konstructs/Kerbinside, aim for the Area 110011 runway, which is far longer than the KSC one.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
