A mod rocket called Lumina-Class Light Drone Lifter: Swallow. Built with 90 of the finest parts, its root part is probeStackSmall.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.0.4.

While Jeb and Val, and even Bill and Bob if pressed hard enough will hop into an untested design and fly to an unexplored world at a moment’s notice, the majority of the other Kerbals that signed up to join the Kerbal Space Program do like a thin veneer of things like ‘safety’ and ‘preparation’ to coat their missions before launching themselves into space. So, in an effort to satisfy the demans of the public, and extend our reach ever-further, we present to you the first in a series of unmanned lifting rockets, a first for the KKAC. Highly modular, KKAC lifting rockets will be able to easily be converted to lift a variety of payloads, and will come in several configurations to suit each client.

The first in our lifter series is the Lumina-Class, the Swallow. Designed around a 1.25 meter core and with a fully-recoverable solid-fueled booster stage, the Swallow can take nearly three tons into LKO, or bring slightly over one ton into Kerbo-Stationary Orbit. A √32,000 means this lifter is accessible to every space program. Add it to your VAB today!
