Description

Best Nasa-like-look-Space-shuttle I have build so far. Took a lot working hours to make it stable enough for re-entry and ascent. And make it look like a real one (with stock parts!!!) Really doesn’t work with mechjeb so you need to be ready steer it to orbit and back to the runway. It lifts EASY 45 Tons to 200 - 300km orbit (example Jumbo-64 and Rockomax X200-16 fuel tanks together: 3600l fuel + 4400 ox) and returns back to base.

This version (1.0) of shuttle has:

  • Low stall speed, it’s is well balanced without any dummy weight)
  • Planned stages, example. Main engines work only when external fuel tank is attached.
  • Extra ordinary lifting capability
  • It looks good

Check out my Hangar now and then (sub?). I wont publish new versions as new releases but updating this one.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
