Description

UPDATE!!!!!!
The launch vehicle is very different now and should be easier to get into space.(Not the Spaceplane it’s self that is still the same.)

A stock rocket called [The PhoenixStar]. Built with [63] of the finest parts, its root part is [ Mk1 Cockpit].

Built in the [VAB] in KSP version [1.2].

Background:
The SSTO-338 commonly know as the PhoenixStar was built by K.A.S.E (Kerbin AeroSpace and Exploration) to fulfill the need for a multi purpose, orbital transport vehicle. But was later modified to gain military support in funding the project. The military version of SSTO-338 was built to serve as a Long range, reusable, orbital observation craft and transport military assets to Private military Space stations. Features include, two PB-NUK RTGs (For electricity), One LV-N Nerv Atomic Rocket Motor, Room for two Kerbals, and a cool name.

Tips:

  1. During reentry point the nose of the craft up @45 degrees. make sure to use the air brake to help slow down. Also use the radiators on the side of the craft to avoid overheating.
  2. When you reach space make sure to activate the RCS ports.

Q&A:
Q: What if I overshoot the KSC?
A: Don’t worry that’s why the plane has two basic jet engines. Just shutdown the atomic engine and your ready to turn on those speed demons!
