General Purpose Kerbal Transporter.

  • Can go from KSC to Minmus’s surface and then return to KSC. Needs to refuel in LKO or LMO in order to go to the mun and back.

  • Can go from KSC to Duna or Ikes surface, refueled there it can return to KSC via aerocapture/aerobraking and re-entry.

  • Little stern wings provide attitude control during aerobraking/aerocapture/entry, but do not attempt to glide with them.

  • Capable of fully autonomous operation via MK2 Drone core below the passenger deck.

  • Inline Cockpits allow you excellent vision from internal view during docking and landing

Landing Procedure Through Atmosphere
1. Enter Atmosphere in rad-out level orientation
2. Transfer fuel from lower to upper tanks as needed to maintain orientation.
3. Between 5-15 km above the surface (depending on fuel load, higher fuel load, higher altitude) flip to retrograde upside-down orientation. Put all fuel in the lowerest tanks and switch fins to -100 control to assist in flipping.
4. Start engines below 1 km altitude.

A stock rocket called GPKT 2.01. Built with 76 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3CrewCabin.
