rocketplane can get a lot more done per ton than a capsule of the same mass. With 500-800 m/s of delta-v available after making it to orbit this craft can ferry up to 5 kerbals to orbit and back at a cost of only ~$12k after return and reuse. Attach a more powerful booster and it can ferry crews to the surface of minmus and back, or even the mun and back with a descent stage added. Proven to easily aerobrake and re-enter kerbin from as far as Minmus space.
Flies to orbit with ease manually, or with a mechjeb profile of 40. Re-enters with ease manually as well, but flies through the lower atmosphere like a fish tied to a brick, hence the need for parachutes for landing. Can land at spaceport with skill, extreme skill if you try for the runway without deploying parachutes.
Update 12017.3.23: Centered pod into main fuel tank and returned to a single nose cone, made all fuel and RCS tanks visible, improved wheel spring and damping strength, inverted front well and adjusted wheel brake strength.
