Description

A replica of the abandonned european shuttle project called: Hermes. The shuttle was planned to take off on the top of an Ariane 5 launcher.
There is a Kerbal Engineer chip inside.
The shuttle has two Juno engine to help it reach the runaway after the reentry.
You’ll see that some of the fuel tanks are empty or with some oxidizer, it helps to maintain the center of mass in a good place so i would not recommend to add or remove fuel.
You can also take off the runaway without the rocket stage and the shuttle will fly quite fine.
