Description

A stock rocket called Proton. Built with 129 of the finest parts, its root part is fairingSize2.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.

This is my replica of a Proton rocket. It is a Russian rocket that first launched in the 60s, and is still in use today. I tried to make the payload capacity similar to the real rocket. I did that by limiting the amount of fuel in each stage, thus bringing the overall Delta-V down. EDIT: You may have to add fuel to the rocket in order to get the full 22-ton payload (the cluster of fuel tanks) into orbit, I think I miscalculated on the fuel.
Launch Instructions:
1) Liftoff!
2) Begin gravity turn at 1,000m
3) Be pointed at 45 degrees by 10,000m
4) Continue gravity turn at a slower rate
5) Stage 1-2 separation/ ignition
6) Fairing separation
7) Burn until you either run out of fuel or achieve your desired Ap
8) Stage 2-3 separation/ ignition
9) Plan and execute maneuver node to achieve orbit
10) Payload separation
