SkunkTwerks Presents: The BTL Y-Wing SSTO, a high-fidelity all-purpose starfighter painstakingly re-jiggered for Kerbonauts. Optimized for reaching Kerbin orbit in a single stage, for higher visual accuracy and atmospheric flight performance please see the SkunkTwerks BTL Y-Wing ATMO. Perfect for fragging frigates, blowing up battleships, and making holes in the KSC water tanks. Staging hotkey activates up to four shots from each of the KX5 Laser Cannons.¨SkunkTwerks “SSTO Or Your Galactic Credits Back” Guaranteed Ascent Profile: Engage SAS and throttle to full before starting engines. After liftoff, pitch up to ~35 degrees and hold 35 degrees climb until 10,000 m altitude. Pitch down to 0 degrees to begin level flight, then with SAS still on, allow pitch to drift up naturally as craft accelerates rapidly. Switch RAPIERS to closed cycle (Hotkey 1) as soon as velocity begins to drop. Allow pitch to drift up to 20 degrees, and hold at 20 degrees until desired apoapsis is reached. More efficient ascent profiles likely exist, but will void the warranty. Clamp-O-Trons at the tail of the ship and in the astromech droid’s head (hotkey 4) allow orbital refueling. RCS not included.
