Description

A circumlunar craft that would have flown in 1967 and delivered men to the moon by the end of 1968. Historically, the Proton booster was just barely capable of accomplishing this. In Kerbal space, there is more than enough delta-V to orbit the Mun and return.

A mod rocket called Soyuz 7K-L1 Zond. Built with 59 of the finest parts, its root part is Tantares.Crew.A.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.4.

The one-piece Tantares Proton booster is way overpowered so I used some Contares and AB Launcher parts to build a slightly scaled down UR-0500 booster. Still over powered, though. And the gimbaling on the engines is a bit much. Use the CapsLock key to make the ascent to orbit a little less sensitive.
