stock spaceplane


Can transport 20 Kerbals and 34 tons to low orbit.

Completely rebuild the wings, improving stability greatly. Added forward fuel tanks. Increased from 4 engines to 5. Comes with semi-universal docking port.

Wings are not unbreakable so be careful pitching too much at supersonic speeds. Because of the high power of the engines use a very shallow ascent profile.

  • Can bring 34 tons to orbit with 450-500 m/s of delta-v to spare.

  • Can land with 34 tons of cargo.

  • Replace cargo bay with a Mk3 Fuselage Long and it can land on minmus and return with 20 kerbals, or enter low mun orbit and return.

  • Replace MK3 Passenger module with a CRG-25 and it can carry 51 tons of cargo to orbit with 100-150 m/s of delta-v to spare.
