Details

  • Type: SPH
  • Class: aircraft
  • Part Count: 32
  • Pure Stock

A VTOL capable aircraft that takes its styling cues from the Harrier.
Pilot notes :
Enable SAS and stage - this will power up all engines. Use Hot Keys 1 and 2 to select which engines are required.
Hot key 3 can be used to enable reverse thrust for slowing down for transition from wing borne flight. Be aware though that slowing down too much at high thrust settings can lead to flame out of the lift engine.
Due to the anhedral wing layout, the aircraft can be a bit touchy around the roll axis, so look out for that.
Due to weight constraints, VTOL is not possible with full fuel tanks. For longer range missions requiring full tanks, use the Short Take Off ability.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.
