Description

Named after the Roman goddess of hunting, this two years old craft is a bit particular to me as she was my first tailless concept ever. To be honest she stayed in the hangar since 1.0.2, until this day. And with the difference between the game versions after all these updates, she definitely needs some facelift!
Now she is resplendent again and sharped like an arrow. She have much than enough impulsion available to reach the Mun or Minmus with some tourists aboard.

But, it’s important to remember that without vertical surface Diane can be a bit hard to maintain stable.
About the final procedure, I would recommend to reenter with no more than 45 degrees of incidence, after decelerating enough for the plasma to disappear lower the nose gently, then the best would be to wait to be around 20 km of altitude before starting to turn.

A stock rocket called Sleg X-24A Diane. Built with 65 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1Cockpit.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.1.
