A stock aircraft called SS-50 Long Range Rocket and Mobile Launcher. Built with 285 of the finest parts, its root part is trussPiece3x.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.

This is an old craft, about 1 year old. Because of the KSP updates, some of the physics have changed. One noticable difference is the landing legs will blow up when you raise the rocket to the upright position. They aren’t needed necessarily and the wheels can support the craft so, w/e.

Launch instructions:
1. press 2 to toggle landing gear to lift the rocket in the upright position. Quickly followed by the next step.
2. press 1 immediately after step 1 to undock the rocket from the base.
3. throttle will be reset to zero so, throttle up and space to launch.

The large docking port supporting the rocket in the upright position will blow up after launch unless you have thermals turned off like I do in the vid below. Also, not sure how this handles re-entry with newest version. Also again, since I had thermal heating off, I am not sure how it handled re-entry at time of the recording either :)
