Description

A mod rocket called Mission Support. Built with 251 of the finest parts, its root part is Large.Crewed.Lab.

This is the center section of the craft shown. It is intended to support deep space exploration missions by providing laboratory services as well as towing and light space station duties. The configuration above is configured as a full clipper class starship. The launcher has some issues when used with deadly reentry due to problems with the heat model for the radial LFBs. It is designed to be light and versitile, lacking the more luxurious capabilities that my 3, 5, and 10m designs have.

Update: I had erroneously left the second orange tank in it’s disabled launch configuration. With that tank enabled, the available dv is 8.8km/sec, twice as much as what is shown in the screenshot. It will probably do more than that if you drop the second tank as soon as it empties, and its range is unlimited if you can get it to a source of karbonite.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.2.
