Description

This is the Pisces launch vehicle. It can lift a full orange tank to a 100*100km orbit. Both stages are fully reusable. It does not require any mods for recovery.

Launch instructions:
Do a standard gravity turn, and when the first stage is almost depleted, drop it. It should land somewhere on or near the peninsula to the east of the space center.
Run the second stage on full power until the time to apoapsis is more than 5 minutes.
Switch back to the first stage, and deploy the parachutes when it is safe, then deploy the landing gear and fire the engines at the very last second if possible. Recover the craft.
Open the tracking station and go the the upper stage. It should be near its apoapsis. Circularize the orbit and deploy the payload.
Deorbit the second stage, keep it pointed retrograde during reentry, deploy parachutes when safe, and fire the engines at the last second if possible to keep the touchdown speed below 5 m/s. Pray that you land on a flat surface

Built with 139 of the finest parts, its root part is a TR-18A Stack Decoupler.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.1
