Description

The Soviet military space station was originally planned to launch with both station and crew in the late 60s but technical problems delayed the Almaz program. When Salyut 3 flew in 1974, it was without the VA return capsule. A crew arrived later in a Soyuz.

A mod rocket called Salyut 3 Almaz. Built with 106 of the finest parts, its root part is Alnair.Crew.A.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.

In addition to a re purposed strategic bomber anti-satellite canon (not included in this model) the Almaz also had an information return capsule. The station had over a dozen cameras and it would be convenient to return some of that data directly while the station and crew remained in orbit. Action Group 4 detaches the VBK-Raduga capsule and you can then use its own rockets, guidance and parachute to return it to your sovereign territory.

This craft is built with the newer Contares and TantaresLV mod packs but with the Old Tantares builds. If you update Tantares from the KSP Forum links to Github, it will break your ships and kill your crews.
