SPH
stock ship

Overpowered and plenty of wing - it won’t win any efficiency challenges, but the flight path is simple (12-15 degrees the whole way) and quick. And it’s very maneuverable for its size, for reliable 100% recovery on the runway.
50T to 80km orbit with 400m/s left over for maneuvers. Center of mass, at the middle of the cargo bay, barely moves during flight. Not much attention needed by the loadmaster, but double check the CoM vs CoL if you have a very asymmetric load.
Roll out on 50% throttle until about 40m/s, then go full throttle. The two intakes are enough for every phase of flight except full throttle at very low speed.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
