You needn’t argue with me. My degrees are in engineering physics and astronautics.
For the argument part, other member has made a better demonstration.

But I will ask, what the f-word is the diploma flashing about? Your NOT having a degree in the ship building industry did not stop you from arguing in warships and maritime engines, your NOT having a slightest education of Chinese history did not stop you from sprinkling saliva on the subject of what China should or should not do.

Besides, everybody here including me have degrees in various disciplines, so watch out your mouth when you enter some other subjects.

They work differently but that doesn't mean tilted boost doesn't make sense. A tilted booster has less torque as the force passes closer to center of mass.

Imbalance of booster is less likely to cause tilting of the rocket/ easier to compensate.
This should be easy to understand for someone with a degree, you don't need to stress that.

Wouldn't the offset reduce the thrust some what?

Yes, but it's quite minor. From the photo it's around 4 degree angle, cos(4) is 0.9976, that's only 0.24% reduction in thrust comparing to not angled. That's the good thing about cosine function, the slope near 0 degree is close to 0. If you use radian, cos(x) can be represented as 1-0.5*x^2 when x is small enough.

Sprinkling saliva on the subject... LOL! Ah, that's a good one, I'm going to use that one.

Do note the small canard and the box wings and the four turbofan/Ramjet/CC engines. Certainly not the original creation of some model vendor.

Wait, why does it have box wing like structure ? Isn't the piggybacking spaceplane supposed to detach? Or is it an integrated craft?

The more I look, the more it seems like an model.
