SpaceY Parts Pack - for some reason, this came up as SpaceY Expanded, I don’t believe there are any parts from SYE.

Kerbal Joint Reinforcement

Description

A replica of the first American manned orbital spacecraft (and converted ICBM), the Mercury-Atlas is just about able to lob a Mercury capsule into low Kerbin orbit.

Features stage-and-a-half technology! Stage the outer two Kiwi engines when you get below 1,300 units of LiquidFuel. Makes orbit on fumes, beware.

Action groups:

  • Abort - abort.

  • 1 - Jettison LES tower

  • 3 - Toggle vernier engines (recommended if you want a better fuel margin).
