I had this inspiration after re-watching Scott Manley’s video on his Reddit Challenge: Could this still fly in v1.0? The answer is yes, but with three caveats. One, since Squad has ‘nerfed’ the Nerv fuel requirements, the Terrier engine is a better bet for LfOx usage. You can still use the Nerv and leave out the Oxidizer, but the Terrier is the better bet Dv-wise. Two, you have to watch this craft carefully throughout its powered ascent through the air, otherwise the aerodynamics will flip it out of control. And three, you have to keep the prograde in front of your craft. This will result in you taking control of the craft manually and flying it temporarily. Also, I’ve had to add a decoupler to the staging to make it work. At 6 parts, this is such a versatile craft, it has a wide range of uses. Adding a PB-NUK RTG on top seems to satisfy the power requirements. Or use a crewed command pod with solar panels. Enjoy!
