Mad Magician eXploration presents another spaceplane, this time, a cargo lifter! The Gallahad class freighter is capable of putting a 55 ton payload in a 100km orbit and returning safely home! This monstrosity is not a SSTO, as engineering thought it would be cool to try using some SRBs as speed boosters on the runway!

She takes a little getting used to to fly, but she glides well and will likely see a lot of use with the large payload capability. Cargobay is an extended length allowing for larger station or vessel components to be put in orbit. At 55t payload capacity she doesn’t have much fuel in the tank for doing orbital rendezvous maneuvers so you might want to lift a tug if doing multiple piece projects, or simply decrease payload size, something in the 45t category will likely have enough fuel budget to do rendezvous operations.

Don’t forget to check action groups, specifically #2 which disables several of the engines to reduce torque in non-atmospheric burns.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.2.
