A stock aircraft called Seabiscuit. Built with 23 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit. Named by my roommate’s sister. As far as I know, doesn’t work in the sea.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.0.5.


  • Type: SPH
  • Class: aircraft
  • Part Count: 23
  • Pure Stock

So, I made a new career save and I love doing atmospheric contracts. You know, because I build planes… This jet uses up to 5th tier parts, is only 23 parts, and can be built/purchased with lvl 1 hangar and research facilities (but I always upgrade my runway). It can be outfitted with science as deemed necessary by contracts - hence, why it’s parked on top of the airstrip-island in the last picture.

No Action Groups. They haven’t been unlocked, yet.

I’m uploading it because it ended up being great! Practically turns on a dime and has a stall speed just above 40m/s; i.e. it’s way more maneuverable then I expected it to be and can still break mach close to sea level - albeit, just barely. Give it a go if you’re interested in what can be done with 5th parts-tier craft. I’m sure they’ll be more… until I upgrade the research facility.
