Description

The Shuttle Apollo is a heavy, sleek SSTO capable of easily putting an orange fuel tank into orbit. Utilizing 12 RAPIER engines and 4 nukes, this heavy hitter can take you where you need to go, and do it in style. Easy to control, easy to fly, easy to space, and it can land!
Flight profile is simple. Wheels up whenever possible, usually around 130 m/s, pitch to 10-15 degrees and ride the air waves until 10 km. level out to about 5 degrees and let the RAPIERs do their thrust thing. When acceleration begins to fall, press 2 to toggle the middle 4 engines, then when acceleration falls again press 3 to toggle the 4 inner engines, and repeat with the 4 outer engines. 5 toggles the 4 nukes, use them whenever, you’ve got tons of fuel. Ideally, you will still have your air breathing mode on even up to 1400 m/s, but it depends on the cargo.
this beauty flies so well thanks to its unique wing design. The gentle slopes cut through the air, while the sculpted control surfaces grab the air and point you in the right direction.
