Description

The flying four legged neighing landcreature. Legend has it that the Equus can be ridden by brave Kerbals, all we know is that it takes a brave Kerbal to ride this four booster beast past the Mun, or if really foolhardy, past Minmus.

Capabilities

The AeroEquus has over 5600 m/s of delta-V, more than enough to get to the orbit of the Mun or Minmus and return, or head to interplanetary space and not return. A Minmus landing and return mission could be performed, provided that the player has a steady hand on the controls, but the lack of solar panels and the need for active stability control may deplete the capsule's meager batteries.
