Clustering STIG modules for higher performance

By utilizing many STIG-A type modules in a cluster, it will be possible to achieve two and maybe even three stage flights.  This can greatly increase altitude and performance.  The proposed STIG - VII seen above appears to approach the performance needed for orbital flight.  Particularly if the core module operates as a third stage, and carries a large fourth stage as ~75% of it's payload.

I know! It really does look that way. If each unit can be mass produced at minimal cost, it makes sense to try it this way.
