For safety and efficiency reasons, Kerbolair did not agree to use only two engines to power its airliners. The first logic was simple: if one engine fails, you can fly smoothly with two. And the second reason: three engines at 30% of their power are more efficient than two at 50% of their capacity. These previous principles were the basis for the creation of the third version of the A7-130 Kerssic, which for now using three engines instead of four, it was renamed Kerless (Kerssic less engines). Additionally, the new A7-130P-300 was designed with modernized wings and empennage, and a shorter fuselage to decrease its weight in order to hold almost the same amount of fuel as the previous version. And if that was not enough, the Kerless turned out to be superior in flight autonomy than the Kairbine (Trinikerm) and Jebedastar (Triassic) trijets, being also more stable at low speeds and more resistant to perform safe landings on unpaved runways.
Due to its high reliability, the A7-130P-300 Kerless became Kerbaflot’s front-line airliner for many years.

Action groups listed.

1.- Flaps down (9)
2.- Gear down (120m/s);
3.- Elevons assist (8) to keep the plane’s nose up;
4.- Touch down (80m/s);
5.- Shut down engine 2 in order to use thrust reversers and start APU again (2);
6.- Activate spoilers and ground airbrakes (6), toggle thrust reversers (7) and break with the landing gear (holding B);
7.- Max reverse throttle to fully stop;
8.- Toggle forward thrust (7), shut down the another engines (1, 3), retract spoilers and ground airbrakes (6), deactivate elevons assist (8) and toggle nose gear steering to taxi ( R );
