Â Â Itâs hard to believe that the B-58 Hustler has not previously been tackled for Orbiter.Â The B-58 seemed fantastically advanced for its day.Â The delta-winged, Mach 2.0 bomber was futuristic-looking, and as fast in speed and time-to-climb as the F-4 Phantom II, which it raced at least once. Â
Â Â Â Project Town Hall was a brief proposal, and study, examining the B-58 Hustler as the launch platform to use a minimum-modified Minuteman ICBM (then starting production) as a small satellite launcher.Â Air launch would add the benefits of freedom from launch ranges, choice of inclination and longitude of ascending node, and consequent quick-reaction space launch. Â
Â Â Â To use any of the scenarios with Skybolts or Town Hall, you will first need to installÂ Velcr o RocketsÂ (not included).
Â Â Â Â To use the Skybolt scenarios, you need theÂ Skybo ltÂ add-on.
Â Â Â Â To fly from Edwards AFB, you will need theÂ Proje ct X-15 Edwards and High RangeÂ add-on.
