A pretty simple Falcon-9 wannabe, Toucan 18 was my first try to launch multiple small satellites in orbit at once. For this, the launcher is provided with eight small communication satellites, each of them having 1200 m/s of impulse available for future orbital maneuvers. I had to lower the number to 8 units as my old computer is on its final way, but it is possible to place 16 of them under the airfoil.
The first stage can be recovered manually or automatically with the Stage Recovery mod, and the second stage should still be able to de-orbit itself after all the different maneuvers, thus limiting the space debris number.
Thus the total cost of the launch is approximately 7,500 funds (excluding fuel).
A stock rocket called Toucan 18/Light constellation satellites. Built with 210 of the finest parts, its root part is fuelTank2-2.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.1.
