The 'ready to launch' Black Arrow from Quick Play

The Black Arrow rocket, when fully assembled, resembles the real-life counterpart designed by the United Kingdom. It is also a 'ready to launch' practice rocket in the Quick Play section of the game.

It is comprised of two thruster stages, one connector and one fairing. It comes pre-loaded with a warhead.

As with all rocket parts, station parts and payload parts, the different parts of the Black Arrow may be used, mixed or matched as one wishes when using the Sandbox feature of the game.
