Capsule Recovery Vehicles

Recommended Posts

Having ships waiting in recovery zones is something I've been considering recently, but have never done before. My initial thought was to make a pontoon ship with a cargo bay ramp in the middle with a claw in it to scoop up the capsule. Your clawed sea plane though is so very Kerbal. Much faster than having to plod along at tens of meters a second on the water's surface.

With the work that went into buoyancy, I wish there were more reasons to build boats. Capsule recovery is one. Also, if you use the hardest comm settings, a floating ocean-based relay station just over the horizon from KSC makes some sense if your probe core comms can't reach geostationary orbit satellites. That's by far the most dangerous dead zone.
