Three - stage, completely reusable space plane, horizontal take off and landing, the first stage uses turbojet engine, the second stage uses ramjet (scramjet) engine, the third stage with rocket engine (the second stage is also used as an external fuel
tank for the rocket engine of the third stage). A special feature is the possibility of multiple refueling of the space ship (third stage) by (reusable) tankers, made in the same tanks which are used for climbing into orbit; such refueling could be also
multi - staged, due to which the space ship could reach even a geostationary orbit, Moon, Mars and asteroids (the only price is the amount of launches of reusable tankers, and the time needed).
The general design could be understood from drawings:
