As an additional precursor step to a manned mission to Dres, a rover will be roaming a patch of the desolate grey planet as a roaming remote laboratory. The Acquisitor has basic scientific tools as well as a new articulating device to further analyse the surface of Dres.

A stock rocket called Acquisitor Dres Surface Roaming Laboratory. Built with 790 of the finest parts, its root part is Decoupler.0.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.12.4.


  • Type: VAB
  • Class: ship
  • Part Count: 790
  • Pure Stock
  • KSP: 1.12.4

In the screenshots for the rover the main body has been pitched up. I have no idea how KSP has managed that since I’m pretty sure parts that are properly aligned are part of the same branch of part attachment. The main body is meant to be aligned with horizontal.

Additional Note: The skycrane has tanks that have abnormally larger fuel capacity through modifying the craft file outside of the game.
