The Evo-1 Block-2A is a medium lift launch vehicle designed to deploy satellites into LEO/GEO and to other celestial orbits. The second stage is now reusable at the cost of payload capacity and reusability of the first stage's interstage.
The Block-2 has made major improvements over the Block-1 which will be listed below:
• Larger Landing Legs
• 12 Small Fixed Fins
• New Interstage Design
• Engine Nozzle Extender
• Retractable Heat shield
• 4 Grid Fins
• Upgraded Docking Port
• Upgraded Fairing Design
𝗧𝗶𝗽: The second stage can also be used a tug for small-medium sized satellites
•𝗧𝗼 𝗟𝗘𝗢/𝗚𝗘𝗢: 17,500-20,000+kg
•𝗧𝗼 𝗟𝘂𝗻𝗮𝗿 𝗢𝗿𝗯𝗶𝘁: 16,000-20,000kg
•𝗧𝗼 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗢𝗿𝗯𝗶𝘁: 3,000-13,000kg

- Activate stage 1 / AG 1-3
- Set throttle to 100%
- APX 2 seconds after throttle, set Slider-1 to 100% and activate stage 2
- Run through the rest of the stages.

• When landing, it's suggested that you have both AG's 1 and 2 activated, AG 3 if needed, during your initial landing burn then switch to your singular landing engine.
•When reentering the second stage make sure RCS is activated.
•Activate the parachute (AG 8) anywhere between 8,000 to 6,500 meters or the craft will loose stability.

•There is a simple vizzy code that will block you from activating the engine (AG 4) unitl the heat shield (AG 5) is activated. If this for some reason causes problems for you, deleting it won't cause any harm.
•If there are any craft problems / suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments.
