The Duna Colonial Transporter is the ultimate creation of Atrociously Ambiguous Aeronautics, LLC. The Big Kerbal Rocket propels the spacecraft into the upper atmosphere, where the DCT itself takes over and burns into orbit. The DCT is capable of travelling to Duna, and beyond, and returning to Kerbin thanks to its massive fuel tanks and mining capabilities.

The engineers at AAA, LLC needed a huge booster to propel the spacecraft into orbit - the Big Kerbal Rocket. It comprises the first stage of the craft and has 31 KS-25 engines.

The DCT vehicle has approximately 5,000 m/s of dV, RCS thrusters for maneuvering, solar panels, landing legs, mining drills, ore tanks, fuel converters, a docking port, landing lights, and two sets of engines for atmosphere and vacuum environments. It is controlled by probe cores and can carry up to 96 Kerbal passengers.

The Duna Colonial Transporter is built with 331 Elon-certified parts. It was built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0. It requires the mod Kerbal Reusability Expansion. The blueprint picture was taken with Kronal Vessel Viewer.

Update 9/25/17: Several modifications made.
Update 8/28/17: Booster-stage legs removed.
