    I counted some WAYPOINT figures for the crafts ascent to orbit.

    Interesting is that the craft has to reach almost orbital speed below 100 km to be able to fly to orbit.

    M3 at 60 km and weight 56 metric tons.

    M15 at 85 km and 31 tons weight ( rocket fuel burned away ). Plane is now a SSTO with 120 m long wings.


    Needs fuel dopots enroute if LOX/LH2 ship.

    Bob counted those; http://exoscientist.blogspot.fi/2015...planetary.html
