Vall Hopper - Ore Transport and ISRU

Vall ISRU Lander

Developed for the cold, airless world of Vall, this ISRU Hopper finds use on heavier bodies. Moho and Vall are the heaviest bodies tested with positive fuel returns. The larger sister ship to the Gilly Hopper, it serves the same purpose as ISRU converter and ore transport. Sharing most of the Gilly Hopper’s upper half, it keeps the science bay, Football dock and 6 Kerbal capacity. It exchanges the lower half for a larger, LF only tank and 4 nuclear engines. The off side engine configuration allows a Sr. docking port to be installed underneath. This allows attachment of the Rover Package for local scouting.

Moho runs from the surface to a 35kmx35km orbit show the Vall Hopper can make an ascent, dock, descent and landing with no or very little fuel drawn from ore tank.

Holds 1500 units of ore.

Built with 83 of the finest parts, its root part is dockingPort2.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
