  1. Hello, everyone! Recently, I took a break from my usual space-faring missions to build a new VTOL dropship. The Hummingbyrd VTOL has four Panther engines which are mounted on hinges that allow the aircraft to alternate between VTOL and forward flight postures. The decision to use Panther engines was made because of their ability to make instantaneous thrust changes via the afterburners, which helps tremendously when landing. The engine housings use two sets of small internal docking ports with one of each offset to the other engine to allow for each set of engines to r
  2. D20-TC Goose Dropship Designation 20-Troop Carrier Description Details Type: SPH Class: ship Part Count: 473 Pure Stock The D20-TC Goose Dropship 20-Troop Carrier is our new carrier that will now support light medium and heavy transportation around Kerbin and hopefully around other atmospheric planets. The D20-TC Goose comes standard with 16 merged J-404 Panther Engines using new noclip technology spawned from a local trans
  3. Halo Inspired Craft Capable of VTOL this is the MKI Variant with cluster of engines on rear. MK II Variant with Rapiers still in testing phaseCraft File: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1963572147Kerbal X: https://kerbalx.com/InterstellarKev/Aloy-Over-Horizon-I
  4. Let's take a minute to remember the olden days, when jet engines were practically warp drives and the atmosphere was indiscriminate of a rocket's shape. Though years of updates have taken the game a long way, some still long to feel the hypersonic wind in our hair atop a pancake-shaped ssto dropship. Alas, atmospheric drag has made dropships like this infeasible... Until now. How? I've reapplied an old technique tor creating crazy dropships the game THINKS are streamlined, but arent. It just involves stacking fuel tanks on top of each other, like a rocket, and then offsetting them to
  5. After recently completing the campaign to Respawn Entertainment's wonderful FPS, Titanfall 2, on Master-level difficulty, I took a dive into finding the game's concept art- there's a lot of great inspiration there. As a direct result of this, meet the IMK TD-4727 'Phase Raptor' Dropship, a top-of-the-line tactical VTOL craft optimized for military use: Designed around a distributed thrust system, the Phase Raptor has twin cockpits (which on a forthcoming BDA version, will allow for a gunner), and a rear passenger hold with room for up to 6 elite Kerbal pilots. Twin forward-th
  6. Although the Fierbird proved more than enough for transporting cargoes to the surface of Duna or other low-gravity celestial bodies, it was not practical for tougher missions such as putting base modules onto Tylo or Laythe or carrying heavy payloads between planets. The Erebus was designed to do both of those things and then some. Download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vmolbswndjkdlry/Erebus.craft?dl=0 (comes with mining/processing module in the cargo bay) Features: VTOL capability: The Erebus has three Vectors and two Thuds on the bottom, which allow it to vertically take off
  7. A mid-sized Dropship, the Firebird is designed for transporting Rovers to and from the surface of Duna. Thanks to the "Moar Vernors!" strategy used by it's creators, it is extremely agile, stable and ideal for carrying oversized or lopsided cargoes. Imgur album that shows more of the features: http://imgur.com/a/CqfDp Download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5k4ufjyp1r4v4ok/Firebird x2.craft?dl=0 Features: Descent Autopilot: With an experienced pilot, the Firebird can be landed simply by setting the SAS to keep it retrograde and adjusting the throttle. Claw
  8. I've seen a few Dropship designs on the forum lately and I thought I would have a go at my own version. 213 Parts. 115 tons. I made a couple of tweaks to the version shown in the video so it now carries 2 pilots and 4 passengers. You can't see the cockpit door but you can still EVA a Kerbal from it. The Mk1 passenger modules can be EVA'd from the cargo bay. Hotkeys: 1) Toggle Rear Engines 2) Toggle thrust reversal on Rear Engines 3) Toggle VTOL Engines 4) Toggle Afterburners on VTOL Engines 9) Toggle Roof Doors 0) Toggle Ramp Door
  9. Sector 7 Space Laboratories - Dropship Division AirLift One AirLift One is capable of transporting small craft for Land Drops or at Sea. After flight test the forward thrust engines were better off being an option, the craft file provided is going to have the Whiplash Engines rather then the Vector Engines, the Vector Engines will thrust the craft forward with a surprisingly quick jolt of speed giving the craft better handling, on the other hand the Whiplash Engines will give more flight time. With three Pilots, two Engineers, a Cargo Operations Chief and Passengers the total personn
  10. Craft File: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7y8taoffl62rqb4/AVT-10%20Splinter.craft?dl=0 (NOTE: This comes in a drydock setup with no launch vehicle; I'll eventually try and make one, but for now I'd say your best bet is to either put it in a fairing atop a tall rocket and/or hyperedit it to the planet of your choosing.) Controls: 1- Toggles engines on/off G- Landing Gear Piloting at surface-level is done via the horizontal view (via the internal crew seating or probe core), while in-space piloting is done via the top-mounted docking port for a vertical view inline with the CoT.
  11. Sector 7 Space Laboratories Dropship Division - Boss Hogg Boss Hogg gets it's name from the old TV show Dukes of Daisy.....uh Dukes of Hazzard, I was not much into the show nor did I like Boss Hogg much, I just looked at the craft and his name came to mind when I saw short fat and you know! ..... It can travel a good distances before needing fuel, landing is extremely difficult and not recommend for beginners. Refueling is a chore but it pays off in the long run, it has a really nice cockpit view. If you need a large crew and some small equipment delivered far away from Mission Control th
