Hello! I have shared this craft on the Heavy Lifters thread, but without the download. Now I want to share it with you! I present: the SpaceY Super Lifter! https://kerbalx.com/RA3236/SLS-SpaceY-Heavy-Lifter A slightly modded craft that can easily do 200t to orbit with the Emu engines on the last stage. Surprisingly, even in large payload changes of 100+t the bottoms stage TWR does not change that much. Most of these tests were using an excellent mod called GravityTurn, which I suggest you get to lift larger payloads over 250t. It is an efficient autopilot that can use less then 3000 m/s dv to orbit. To change payloads, first find the Emu engines. Easily done, they are the bottommost engines. Find the separator for that page and save the stage as a subassembly. In the default configuration the Emu engines can do orbit and reach the Mun and Minmus. I tested the dv capability of the ship, which was enough to do a Mun-Minmus-Mun-Reentry round trip. Just watch though, all stages have a high TWR. The ship was originally designed to lift the Taurus HCV with VSR docking ports but other payloads seem to work. The craft is stable in ascent but needs a lot of tilting for the turn due to the wings.
