A mod rocket called Corona-Class Drone Lifter: Phoenix. Built with 138 of the finest parts, its root part is SYprobe3m.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.4.

The R&D staff at KKAC recently discovered the Space Y corporation, a rocketeering company specializing in large, heavy-capacity rocket parts, perfect for our next design, the Phoenix. With a maximum payload of two hundred fifty-nine tons that can be brought into low Kerbin orbit, the base model of the Phoenix is one of our more efficient launchers, able to bring up over half its dry mass in payload weight. It is also the first model of launcher to experiment with fuel-line transfer mid-flight. When the liquid-fueled boosters drop away, the main tank still will be full of fuel, if all goes to plan. At √776,000, it is one of our more expensive craft, but it is well worth the price tag.
