Description

Hi, guys, thanks for checking out my 1,200 ton dummy payload. =)

What’s that? You’re wondering how I got it into a 105km orbit? Hmm… Don’t quite remember, it’s been a while since I’ve flown this monstrosity. It weighs just shy of 6,800 tons on the pad. =P Warning, those boosters are a bit wild (as they have to be !!) don’t try to launch anything lighter than around 1,000 tons on this… Be really ginger with the throttle until SRB sep too. And don’t worry if a few of those cute little mini KR-2L’s break off during booster sep, the rocket doesn’t really need all of them.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 0.25.0.

Update: 0.90 and/or tweakscale made the mini-KR-2L’s much less overpowering, breaking the design. I managed to fix it by goosing the boosters up to 8MN, using a 3.75 -> 4.8M conical taper to make it nice and streamlined. I replaced all the lower stage engines with the hikari F1’s, I somehow managed to fit 7 of those monsters under it. On the upper stage, I replaced the KR-2L’s with engines from KW rocketry. I also had to remove the upper (5M) stage completely, expand the upper tank to 7.5m on the top and shorten it by 2m, The result can lift 1,000 tons.
