@ Shrimpling

That then would be a Rocket, not Spaceship2

It may be a plan, but if you do the sums for an actual useful orbit, you'll find the Mother plane isn't much advantage and seriously limits the payload.

If it worked, it would effectively be a completely different orbital launch solution. Spaceship2 is incapable of orbit.
