Description

The Modular Interplanetary Kerbal Shuttle System, MIKS for short, is the latest innovation from Brikoleur Aerospace Industries. It is not a single craft but an entire system, designed to shuttle significant numbers of kerbals (and, eventually, cargo) around the Kerbol system with a minimum of fuss. It consists of:

  • MIKS-01 KOS: the Passenger and Fuel Module (PFM) and Kerbin Orbital Shuttle (KOS)
  • MIKS-IT: the Interplanetary Tug, moving the PFM between celestial bodies
  • MIKS-MOS: the Munar Orbital Shuttle module, carrying the PFM to and from low Munar orbit

The MIKS-IT is the interplanetary tug component of the Modular Interplanetary Kerbal Shuttle system. It docks with the MIKS-PFM (Passenger and Fuel Module), then carries it to orbit pretty much any body in the Kerbol system – when docked to a fully-fueled PFM, the craft has about 4800 m/s of dV and sufficient TWR to perform an ejection burn from LKO in a single go; it takes about six minutes.

The provided craft is a launch capable of lofting it to LKO for its first mission, with a few hundred m/s of manoeuvring fuel to spare.

A stock rocket called MIKS-IT. Built with 20 of the finest parts, its root part is dockingPortLarge.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.7.3.
