The cockpit on this craft is angled downwards, so in order to properly control the craft you must control from the Okto2 probecore, which is hidden within the fuselage just underneath the cockpit.

-Basic Description

This craft is a 1:2 scale replica of the Antonov AN-225 Mriya. A full scale version can be found here https://kerbalx.com/Kronus_Aerospace/Kronus-Antonov-AN-225-Mriya . This version being so much smaller allowed me to make it much more accurate and detailed than it’s larger brother. While starting out as a fun little side project, this craft ended up being just as much work as the original.

-Known Issues

Despite my best efforts, this plane cannot handle significant altitudes. No matter how many engines I added the craft’s ceiling never went any higher, hence the lack of a cruising altitude for this craft. The wheesleys are simply not up to snuff unless you add so many that the craft has a ridiculous TWR. Considering that this craft has a mass of 150 tons is simply not feasible
