98t to 100x100km, single-stage recoverable rocket. 97.937/484.144=20.23%
Launch: throttle full, SAS stability on, stage, switch SAS to prograde at 57.5m/s, deactivate mammoth & vectors at 28km (AG1), burn until apoapsis at 100km, circularise.
Recovery: stage parachutes (needed again after payload separation), enable brakes to deploy inflatable heatshield, set SAS retrograde. There should be plenty fuel left to decelerate for reentry, aim for 50-55km and let it aerobrake. Try aim for land, water landings break the rocket. Parachutes will deploy in sets to avoid ripping off the top, and can land it softly.

Don’t take anything too seriously, I’m mostly just having crazy fun testing the (im)possibilites of flight, physics and design in the amazing sandbox that is Kerbal Space Program. Feedback is welcome!
