Outdated: replaced by Ansar II, no longer updated passed KSP 1.2.2


v1.03 Fly everywhere, Land everywhere.

Can land on water or land, with or without any horizontal velocity.

  • Proven to carry 51 tons of cargo half way around Kerbin.

  • Proven to land vertically as high as 5570 meter altitude, so long as tanks are mostly empty and no cargo.

v1.01: Flipped forward engines for aesthetics, added flow priorities to tanks to keep center of gravity from moving, removed vestigial struts.

v1.02: Centered thrust better, added a stupid action group that is not helpful at all.

v1.03: Added ladder

A stock aircraft called Ansar I. Built with 77 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.

It is maneuverable enough to land on the helipad on top of the VAB, will require some good piloting skills though.

Using a KAS Tractor this plane can recover wayward pods and debris.

Floats nicely on water with engines above the waterline.
