Description

The Project Tempest SSTO Shuttle, known in the space program as the Tempest shuttle, is a Mk. 3 SSTO meant to ferry cargo from the main space station, delivered via STS space shuttle, to other destinations beyond low Kerbin orbit. Built with 105 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.

This craft DOES require one mod (Asteroid Day) for the solar panels, to cut down on parts.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.

Note: Flight path is very difficult to achieve. Shuttle must fly at very low pitch (under 10 degrees) to avoid tumbling through atmosphere. Orbit is possible but tough to reach and requires every ounce of fuel and a very specific flight path that I never figured out (I managed to get it into orbit personally twice). Shuttle will require refueling to be useful and cannot carry cargo to orbit in its current configuration.Craft never tested on Laythe. Any attempts to land may result in lithobraking, attempt to land at your own risk.
