A true "cathedral of booster" KSP-esque launcher !

lol I love the "air launched Space Shuttle" ! Soldering two An-225 together and add jet engines over every "free" square centimeter of wing... :ROFLMAO:

Interesting...by letting the boosters glide back to the ground, they don't have to spare fuel/oxidizer for any re-entry burn or landing burn(s) - they can burn 'till depletion (more or less). You need a landing strip, though. And if the cross-range for the glide-phase is big enough to return to the launch-site that would be even nicer - for logistical reasons ;)

A couple of big boosters from the 60s, the first is a Boeing design in the 'only build if you have a payload big enough to need it' category.


The second is McDDs ROMBUS, love the opening on this one.


I think both of these would make wonderful candidates for an Orbiter Addon.
