Forge Star

The Forge Star SSTO was designed in 2030s to replace the Ares 1 and 3 rockets with a cheaper launch vehicle. The Forge Star is largely based of the Venture Star design, except for its larger size and increased payload to orbit. Because of the advancements in Composite materials that happened after the Venture Star, the Forge Star was able to meet performance requirements that the Venture Star failed to originally.


Activation Groups:

1 Engine
3 Aerosurfaces
8 Landing Gear
10 RCS


Vizzy:

Orbit Program:

Pitches over until 90km and burns engines near apoapsis until the periapsis is above the one stated in the Vizzy variables.

Engine throttle program:

Throttles the engines so the TWR is near the value stated in the Vizzy variables.


Notes:

Dont trust the DeltaV readout, it is lying. the Dv is a lot lower.
