Description

A simple but faithful recreation of the Space Shuttle, using Pak’s Shuttle Lifting Body and the DIRECT mod by Benjee. It can take around 15 - 20 tonnes into LKO, leaving you with around 300-400m/s of d/V to play around with. I’m hoping that when the DIRECT mod is properly balanced, it will gain more capability, but for now it’s not too bad.

Landing is difficult, but possible. Trust me. I’ve done it.

Although not a listed mod, I also use Variable Thrust Limiter (http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/105289-11-the-plugin-workshop-small-plugins-of-varied-function/) on the SRBs, with an end limit of around 17.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.2.
