mod spaceplane


Buran (Russian: Бура́н, IPA: [bʊˈran], Snowstorm or Blizzard) was the first spaceplane to be produced as part of the Soviet/Russian Buran programme. It carried the GRAU index serial number 11F35 K1 and is – depending on the source – also known as OK-1K1, Orbiter K1, OK 1.01 or Shuttle 1.01. Besides describing the first operational Soviet/Russian shuttle orbiter, Buran was also the designation for the whole Soviet/Russian space shuttle project.

OK-1K1 completed one unmanned spaceflight in 1988, and was destroyed in 2002 when the hangar it was stored in collapsed.[3] It remains the only Soviet reusable spacecraft to be launched into space. The Buran-class orbiters used the expendable Energia rocket, a class of super heavy-lift launch vehicle.

The pride of the USSR….or a nice copy of the American Shuttle…either way you look at it ..this was a beautiful creation that didnt have a future.

So i made this thing way overpowered….if you go full throtle on this thing you might end up on DUNA….so word of advice THROTLE DOWN on take off….its too much power… about 50% power will get you into high or low orbit.

That being said …this thing is made for atmo flight as well AG1 will toggle your aft engins and it will actually fly very nicely and get you where you need to go…Like if you over shoot the KSP runway…lol like i do all the time…you have more then enough fuel and power to get back home.

I have it set up for science , but you guys can put in what you like. AG2 for the cargo bays… the rest i leave up to you …enjoy and as always HAVE FUN!!!!!
