Description

A mod aircraft called Valkyrie-Class Crew Transport SSTO: Adjudicator. Built with 131 of the finest parts, its root part is mk2DockingPort.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.

Jeb said he wanted something to pilot that went fast and looked cool. So, with those exacting specifications in mind, the KKAC began to draw up designs that would fit the bill. After discovering the Insanity Aerospace Corporation, Jeb insisted that we use their parts in this new spaceplane. Unlike the Arrowhead, which went through several testing phases before being declared design complete, the Adjudicator was assembled very quickly. We believe this is in no small part to the new M.A.T.T.O.C.K. engines provided by Insanity Aerospace, which provide an excellent counterpart to the SABREs and R.A.P.I.E.R.s. An easy-to-fly SSTO that can grace your hangar for √86,000!

Flight Profile: As stated above, the Valkyrie is an SSTO that is a bit of an antithesis to the Arrowhead. Fairly large fuel margins make it very forgiving to fly–with an operational service ceiling of an 130,000m orbit around Kerbin. The main enemy in this craft is thermal heating–manage that well and you will find a powerful craft capable of taking up to 16 Kerbals into orbit.

1) Takeoff from KSC and maintain 10-30 degree climb until you hit ~10,000m

2) Slow your vertical ascent to under 100 m/s, gradually leveling off until 15,000-16,000m

3) Climb again to 20 degrees until the engines die, switch over to rocket mode and circularize
