My first good looking SSTO!


Recommended Posts

There is no such thing as a bad player!!!  :D
Getting a successful SSTO into orbit with any remaining fuel left is tough, so absolutely congrats!
Also, that's a pretty cool looking design, IMO

Being a fellow SSTO Enthusiast (My SSTO however usually stands for Single Stage to Oblivion) I applaud you on your pretty cool looking SSTO. I've made maybe 30 or 32 Barely functioning SSTOs in all my years of playing KSP so this looks better than most of mine already (Mind you, 30 or 32 in about 3 years which is not a lot).

what's the point of using nukes tho?

They have much higher vacuum ISP, meaning they’re very efficient. They also only use Liquid Fuel, no oxidizer.

I know that, my question is why should @AngryPotato9 use Nervs when the SSTO is only meant to reach LKO? They're heavy and are dead mass for 70-80% of the flight

Depends. Sometimes it's just nice to have some extra Delta-V. Maybe he wants to go to a higher orbit, or dock with a station. IDK

aight yea, that makes sense

i think its just im not used to seeing nervs used on anything other than long range or lf-only sstos

I have finnaly done it! This can get into LKO with 47ms of delta V left. I know this isnt inpressive, but im a bad player and to me, this is impressive. Uhh, have a nice day ig.

Looks nice, good job!

If I have one thing to say about improving it, it's that you can remove all the center engines and replace the Mk1 fuel fuselages with rocket fuel tanks to get something that has more than deorbit capability.

Here it is an atom-powered SSTO with 2000 DV after reaching LKO. It's enough to Minmus orbit and back

P.S. @AngryPotato9 , If you move control surfaces more back and wider (to the side engines), you will get more control and stability
