!IMPORTANT: This craft uses my own custom modified version of the stock Ore tank.


The Locust mk.2 is a 4400 Delta-V lander capable of ferrying 3 crew to the surface of several planets and moons. The obscene amount of Delta-V comes from my own modified version of the ore tank which I called compressed liquid fuel and holds 1400 Liquid Fuel and the equivalent oxidizer. The lander should still work well even if a more regular sized fuel tank is used.

The lander is a good combination of stock parts and mod parts. The shielded docking port im the image comes from a mod called Mark IV Spaceplane System, but the craft file I uploaded are using the regular stock ports to decrease the number of addons needed.

The lander is near perfectly balanced and has so far been successfully landed and launched off again from Duna, Mun and Minmus. It is also capable of safe re-entry into Kerbin should the need arise.

The KerbalX knowledge base of mods doesn't include these parts (yet).
