Fafnir

The Fafnir is a mini-two man space shuttle. Originally the KSC came up with the idea a tiny shuttle after the the normal sized one became to expensive. The Fafnir was born. Originally designed for LKO only, the shuttles low production price (spare parts only ya know), high performance and reusability made it the most used small craft.

Fafnir is the name of the dragon from the famous German Niebelung saga.

The KSC started using it frequently for transporting satellites into solar orbit and to carry supplies to any place with an atmosphere. But later the Fafnir became more public to private badasses like Billy-Bobson who famously smuggled moonshine to Laythe for years with it… Until he go busted by taxman Siegfried Kerman.

Why is this craft called Fafnir? No one knows for sure. Some say it’s just a poor ripoff from SpaceX, some say it’s cause of all the firewater smuggling.
