This is a stock, lowtech, cargo SSTO designed in a career mode save. It can carry a 100 ton payload and is the fourth and final in a series of lowtech SSTOs. Unlike the other craft in this series, it has it’s own unique flight profile. Leave the Panthers on Dry mode for take off, once you fly off the end of the runway, try to maintain altitude, than slowly pitch up to begin your climb, once you climb to 1km, switch the Panthers to wet mode, and pitch up to 10 degrees, continue climbing until you begin to decelerate, at which point activate the Mainsails and speed off into orbit. This SSTO is questionably practical, because while it only requires science nodes available with a level 2 R&D, it does require a level 3 SPH and Runway. The three mainsails provide just enough thrust to keep this thing going upward at a decent pace. Could probably 10 or so ton payload into mun orbit, though I would recommend that you quicksave if you attempt it. With and SSTO that can deliver a 100 ton Payload into LKO, who needs rockets? Or R.A.P.I.E.R.S. for that matter?
Also includes 2 Juno engines because I thought it was funny. If I ever make an even bigger one… please submit me into a mental institution
