Description

The Krew Transfer Vehicle (KTV) is a capsule-based SSTO carrying seven kerbals. It carries over 2 km/s ∆v, enough fuel to transfer to and from the surface of Minmus or (paired with a Science Lander) the Mun, making it an extremely cost-effective way to level up kerbals in Career games. Of course, that also means it can transfer to and from low Duna orbit, and it has a heat shield for interplanetary aerocapture. Refueled in low orbit (or transferred with an Orange Tank SSTO), it also makes a very capable Duna landing-and-return vehicle.

The single-stage booster can easily reach a 100 km orbit and then be almost fully recovered, for a total launch cost of ~8000 spesos. The Mk6 features improved aerodynamics and aesthetics, reduced part count, mass, and cost, and more reliable recovery, including a launch escape system and recovery of the fairing à la SpaceX.

A stock rocket called KTV. Built with 90 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1-2Pod. Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
