The Mikojan-Gurewitsch MiG-105 was a soviet space glider (russias concurente for the Amercian Boeing X-20 Dyna-Soar). The plane rose from the
Spiral project, the Soviet Union first attempt to build a reusalbe spacship. Multiple Prototypes were build in 1965. Until 1978 the glider performed a total of eight test flight, neither aiming for space (100km height). Test flights were performed with the Gliders own rocket engine. The project was unfortunatly cancelled. The USSR wanted to focus on the Buran Project
For orbites flights multiple lifters were taken in consideration. Starting with simple ideas like putting the glider on top of a soyus rocket, to more complicated systems, like putting the glider on top of a rocket, which is put on top of a plane, which lifts teh whole system to 20 km height, from where the rocket takes over and the plane departes (The craziest space flight idea if ever read about).
Since their wasnt a decision for a single lifter, i didn’t put on up. The craft file consists only of the space glider. I wanted to leave the lifter design to everyones own creativity. If anyone wants to use the lifter design i used (i just build it quick, didn’t put to much thought in it) i can upload that version to
- Type: SPH
- Class: aircraft
- Part Count: 102
- Pure Stock
- Gets to orbit only with lifter rocket/plane
- reenters save from high AP
- Only land on Land, never on water!
- Glider sometimes loses control, this results in falling down spining. Put the nose down as good as possible and wait a few moments, it catches itself
- Excellent gliding performance (like the real one)

Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
