Description

The Swond 2 improvements over the Swond is upgraded to 1.2.1, a stronger trail section and passenger section for up to 5 kerbals.

Proven to circumnavigate Kerbin with 34 tons of cargo.

Proven to take off from sea with 68 tons of cargo and still be flight worthy.

Minimum Cruise: 275 m/s @ 7 km altitude, 5° pitch, fully fueled & 34 tons cargo
Max Cruise: 275 m/s @ 9 km altitude, 4.5° pitch, nearly empty & 34 tons of cargo

Water Take Off Instruction: Have slats and flaps down, run engines at full power, maintain 0° pitch until reaching more than 80 m/s then pitch up hard. Once airborne and past 100 m/s raise slats and flaps.

Caution: Do not land faster than 100 m/s on water or land, and certainly not with brakes ON as you will rip off the lower fuel tanks and gear. Always activate brakes AFTER touchdown.

Bug: Make sure all flaps and slats extend downwards, for some reason KSP will sometimes change the extend direction.

A stock aircraft called Swond 2. Built with 143 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3CargoRamp.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.1.
