SkunkTwerks proudly presents the Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing SSTO. Loyalist kerbonauts agree that this fast, nimble fighter is great for taking down separatist starfighters and makes a pretty good getaway ship after stealing all the snacks from the R&D fridge. Optimized for reaching Kerbin orbit in a single stage, for optimum atmospheric flight performance, please see the SkunkTwerks Alpha-3 Nimbus-class V-wing ATMO.¨SkunkTwerks “SSTO Or Your Galactic Credits Back” Ascent Profile: Engage SAS and throttle to full before starting engines. After liftoff, pitch up to ~35 degrees and hold 35 degrees climb until 8,000 m altitude. Pitch down to 5 degrees, then allow pitch to drift up naturally as craft accelerates. Switch RAPIERS to closed cycle (Hotkey 1) as soon as velocity begins to drop. Allow pitch to drift up naturally until desired apoapsis is reached. Clamp-O-Trons on the wingtips (hotkey 5) allow for orbital refueling. RCS sold separately.
