A mod rocket called Communotron 16 CommSat + Launcher. Built with 144 of the finest parts, its root part is probeCoreHex.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.3.
A fairly basic RemoteTech communications satellite with launcher. This sat is sufficient for creating a medium range omni network at Kerbin, plus with capacity to relay to Mun/Minmus/anywhere in Kerbin SOI.
The launcher has sufficient dV to insert the sat into Minmus or Mun orbits, even highly elliptical orbits to minimize eclipsing and signal loss.
I’ve had a lot of fun with this ship and have a four satellite comms network over Kerbin composed of these. I’ve also added a couple science modules and used the exact same ship to complete SCANSat missions around Mun and Minmus, and I have also used the craft as the core of an unmanned
Minmus Lander which I’ve successfully tested in Kerbal Construction Time’s
simulation mode, and will soon test
for real. I will likely use the same core (with a bit more EC storage capacity and a bit more hydrazine and perhaps some ion engines) as the basis for my initial interplanetary probes once I unlock more powerful communications dishes.
Do you really want to downvote this?
Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
It will cost you 5 of your own points to downvote
