History

The Liberty Shuttle was created to replace the landers NASA had moved to after replacing the original shuttle program. It is a wide lifting body design with short stubby wings and canards on the front. Since the US lacked easy access to orbit through a tether any efforts they wanted to carry out required the use of these shuttles. They were potentially the best shuttles of their era having a wide range of capabilities and high performance. The US however never produced more than 6 of these due to lack of funding.

It was never armed as far as official records go, however rumors persist of a black ops shuttle using the Liberty frame that was both armed and had defensive capabilities. The primary engines for the Liberty were fairly similar to the EAS-1D Shuttle and allowed full ground to space capability, though it was fuel limited to low earth orbit (LEO) doing so.
