Development begins on a new aircraft, the X-6! The aircraft js being developed to allow the transportation of base components to any location on Kerbin.
KSEA wants to bud research labs ay the following areas:
- Pyramid Region west of KSC.
- North Pole at the site of the strange craft discovered there.
KSEA wants the X-6 to be an extremely fast vehicle, capable of delivering payloads to any location on Kerbin within a few hours.
Due to the extreme speeds the X-6 is expected to reach, initial designs utilize a cockpit similar to the Heavy Cargo Shuttles to deal with the heat generated bybair friction!
