Description

Now with 100% extra fuselages!

The first WinterTech Laboratories entry in the heavy airplane industry, the Humpback is a force to be reckoned.

After failing to design a heavy passenger airplane for a third party contract, the heads of WinterTech discovered that they owned a patent of a heavy cargo plane from a bankrupt startup they had purchased. After accidentally installing seats on the cargo bays and presenting it as brand new, it became a huge sensation in the industry. Reports of traces of glue found near the edges of the fuselages are exaggerated according to WinderTech’s CEO.

Truly a behemoth of its own kind, the Humpback is one of the few airliners utilizing a complete second fuselage design, as well as a secondary cockpit. Eight of the most efficient turbofans provide generous thrust at low altitudes and speeds. Despite its humongous mass, it can takeoff really easy by starting yaw control at 70m/s and can climb up at angles as steep as 30 degrees. It cruises well at a speed of 200m/s and an altitude of 4,5km, but it can rise up to 6km when at the final third of its fuel. With its fuel tanks filled to the brim, it can easily circumnavigate the entire globe without refueling with an acceptable TWR, but the fuel levels should be adjusted for shorter journeys. It has a capacity of 134 Kerbals.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.
