Description

This ship is a bit dicey to launch, it balances a long, top-heavy 2.5m stack on a 5m launcher… It barely has enough fuel to reach an asteroid. As illustrated, it then breaks apart into three pieces which do mining, resource storage (karbonite) and towing (using harvested rock dust). It requires use of KAS cables to attempt to stabilize the weenie stock grabber. =((( Even still, that monster of an engine can snap the stupid fairing base like a twig so limit throttle to practically nothing and settle in for a LONG burn… So yeah, this is an extremely complex ship that has never had an unambiguously successful mission but it is my most sophisticated design and interesting enough to publish… (I have more than a hundred ships in my library…) I think the author of ART has made the drill a bit beefier so go ahead and switch that out with a fresh one from the library before launching…

Built in the VAB in KSP version 0.90.0.
