Description

Луноход

Lunokhod

it just means moon crawler or lunar rover

 

The heavy rover for Zvezda moonbase.

The first craft to land, the rover would inspect the landing site and provide landing guidance for the other modules. The vehicle would be used for transporting crew and cargo between modules, investigating the area near the base and other purposes.

A small reactor to be deployed at the base is included.

The landing platform should have deployable ramps, but I had huge trouble packing the craft the way it is. Anyway, it’s rather good at just jumping from the platform.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.2.
