Description

Based on ZobrAz’s KP-15, only faster, fewer parts and can carry 9 Kerbals instead of 7.

Can circumnavigate Kerbin in 1.3 hr at 14-16 km altitude and 830-850 m/s with 25% of fuel remaining. Can fly at Mach ~2.5 at sea level but range will be greatly compromised as well as the engines will overheat and RUD in 2-3 minutes.

Take-off speed (from runway): 140 m/s
Max Speed: ~900 m/s (Mach 2.6)
Afterburner Performance: Cruises at ~15 km altitude, ~840 m/s, 3° pitch
No Afterburner Performance: Cruises at ~8 km altitude and, ~290 m/s, 5° pitch

Update 17.1.6: No more forward canards, instead fueled wing strake. Prettified tail section. Prioritized fuel tanks to reduce movement of center of gravity. Made passenger section easy to remove.

Converting to Hornero II: Simply replace the engines with Turbo Ramjet Engine that are pitched down 5° to optimize performance while cruising or download the Hornero Supreme and replace the midsection with crew cabins.

A stock aircraft called Hornero. Built with 29 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1Cockpit.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
