Description

1:drills 2:mine 3:gen 4:claws 5:VERT 6:HORZ 7:pulse 0:gimbal

A stock miner called Goblin. Built with 152 of the finest parts, its root part is dockingPortLarge.

I launch Goblin atop my Zephyr launcher but it comes here, separately, ready to mount on your own, preferred lifter.

Inspired by Atkara’s Surface Miner Mk1, its chief differences are:
1. a 650 kN Skipper instead of 4x 60 kN Terriers
2. 4 Hitchhiker cabins (16 crew) forming a stable landing base and allowing easy ground access
3. 4 drills rather than 2
4. it has chutes and can be landed on Kerbin

Goblin is more than a surface miner – it’s a mobile base!

Launch hints: aim for a higher AP, say 120km; keep the Boars until Ap is established. Goblin can be detached and re-assembled into an interplanetary expedition, so it has a dock under its engine: ensure you detach that before lighting the main engine…

UPDATE: now includes a Ladybug rover…

LATEST UPDATE: pictured below: surface docking for larger VTOL craft.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.6.1.
