Salyut 7 had a very distinctive set of solar panels. I believe a previous version of Tantares had them but the current version does not so I had to cheat a bit. The panels are mounted backwards and extend through the habitation module. One of the panels automatically extends with the u action group when you turn on the lights but the other two need to be extended individually. They extend out the side at an odd angle but then lock in place.
