My Space Shuttle with a payload of a Comsat with a Centaur G Prime stage attached.

Can carry 30T to 200x200 orbit easily (More if ascent is carried out well)


  • Type: VAB
  • Class: ship
  • Part Count: 291
  • Pure Stock


It is important to use the action groups correctly when using the shuttle

  • Once roll is complete activate action group 6 - This turns off the roll gimbal on the vector engines (if this is not done it can wobble
  • At 2000m throttle engines down to 66%
  • At 5000m activate action group 7 (This shuts down one of the engines in the booster to simulate thrust trail-off)
  • At 9000m throttle engines back up to 100%
  • At 10km activate action group 8 (This shuts down another engine)
  • At 16km activate action group 9 (This shuts down another engine)
  • Once in space (above 70km) activate action group 4 (This locks vector gimbal and activates the radiators)
  • Also activate action group 1 and 2 - This will disable the vectors and enable to R.A.P.I.E.R.S.
  • Due to the R.A.P.I.E.R.S. being slanted to point through the CoM you must fly the shuttle above any maneuver node (There is a docking port clipped inside of the cockpit which you can control from - This will allow the R.A.P.I.E.R.S. to function properly
