Capable of putting 50+ tons into a 250KM+ orbit and return.
This craft will be much easier to fly using Atmospheric Autopilot in Rocket mode. Once you feel the boosters start to pull, stage activate the Aerospikes to help compensate.
Once the External tank is drained shutdown the SSME’s and the Aerospikes. Jettison the ET and reactivate the Aerospikes to achieve desired orbit. For re-entry, set pitch to 30 degrees, RCS on and toggle body flap and rudderbrakes as needed. Craft has very little drag on descent and may require S turns to help slow down. Be careful in their execution as exceeding the critical AoA will result in a bad experience. Good Luck!

*NOTE: Aero control surfaces are not active for ascent so you will need to program them prior to re-entry. Set as follows:
Ailerons - Roll and Pitch 100
Wing Elevons - Pitch 100
Vertical Stab - Yaw 100
Body Flap is activated via action group as needed.
