Description

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.

Details

  • Type: SPH
  • Class: aircraft
  • Part Count: 362
  • Pure Stock

A cargo seaplane designed for a specific task: recover the first stage fallen into the sea and bring it back to KSC for full refund in career mode. I kept the required tech level as low as possible but due to the high number of parts and its weight/size, the runway and SPH are gonna need to be upgraded. For the frugal career player.

An unusual aircraft, surprisingly manuverable for its size.
It needs a little practice with the controls but when you’re used to it it works like a charm.
Can be used to carry many other things : rovers, small airplanes, mining equipment, capsules.
See action groups for controls.
Take your time and land very slowly about 30 m/s

History

After Jebediah crashed his experimental aircraft into the control tower (don’t worry he ejected), the reconstruction put the space program in saving mode. So Wernher reused a section of the tower to make a vehicle that can recover expensive first stages.
