Deltron Clipper 1 (Nuclear)

Capacity: 6 passengers
Range: LKO with approx 1000 DV remaining
Propulsion: 2 Vectors, 2 NERVS
Power: 2 SP-L 1x6 Photovoltaic panels

Use vectors until you hit 80k apoapse, then switch to nukes using 2 and 3. 1 Opens solar panels. Make sure to save some oxidiser for the return, as you’ll need it for the landing, 150 units should be enough, but leave some more to be sure.

It’s not aerodynamically stable during ascent, but with 2 vectors that doesn’t really matter. Just follow a standard gravity turn profile starting to turn after about 100m/s.

During re-entry it tends to come in at a bit of an angle which does a great job of bleeding off speed. It can get a bit unstable at times but the A.E.R.O.B.R.A.K.E.S make up for that. Parachutes and vectors take care of the last bit of breaking. Make sure you’re coming in over somewhere flat, and careful with the throttle control.
