Korolev shuttle part I

Here is the Korolev shuttle, designed to carry freight or passengers from the planetary surface to low orbit.

It uses two engines: one rocket and another ramjet/ scramjet. It may take off on its own (but with combustive in extra tanks) or piggyback on a larger aircraft that will release it at high altitude.

The Korolev has a very capacious cargo bay and a built-in manipulator arm in the dorsal fin [interior views in another post].


  1. Thank you Nevil. Soon it may fly on your game simulation -if you want it !
