A heavy cargo SSTO with triple propulsion for each stage of flight. Afterburning turbofans for take-off and initial acceleration, scramjets for acceleration to near-orbital velocity and insertion into space, and rockets for circularisation and transfer burns.

Flight profile: Use all the runway since there’s a risk of collision on take-off. Ascend at around 30° until 8km and mach 1. Turn on scramjets and pitch down to around 15°. Continue on that path until about mach 4 and switch of turbofans after 18km start levelling the nose slowly and watch Ap height. Continue on scramjet power until Ap height exceeds 80km and switch off scramjets. TWR with rocket power only is not all too great with payload so start circularisation burn at about 1 minute to Ap. Circularise. ???. Profit.

Confirmed payload capacity of 30 tons to the Mun.

Action groups:

  1. Activate turbofans

  2. Activate aerospikes

  3. Activate scramjets.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.4.
