Description

This craft is designed to be launched once and reused indefinitely, rescuing Kerbals - whether for contracts or your own mistakes - all over Kerbin system. Not reentry capable! 35 parts, includes a probe core, batteries, and solar. Uses Vernors for RCS, as it is 16 tons fully loaded. FL-T100 LFO tank gives lots of docking delta-v. Lacks rear Vernors due to cost, just use the engine. Enough delta-v to travel from LKO to Mun to Minmus and back to LKO to refuel & drop off passengers, even in a KScale2 solar system. Very manoeuvrable and easy to dock.

It’s only modded part is the Thrust Plate from Procedural Fairings, which I highly recommend if you use FAR or just want this great part. Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.4.
