Description

After one too many Mun rockets fell over due to a stiff breeze, Lev Aerospace engineers decided to see if it was possible to build a Mun lander that could be very short and still get there and back.

Not only did they succeed, but they did it without a separate lander vehicle or any pesky orbital rendezvous. Rendezvouses? Either way, it is simple and direct, you just drop stages all the way there.

No tower is needed to board the capsule, since it practically sits on the ground. It also has the simplest abort system ever - it just drops the crew module and the rocket carries on its merry way.

The S model is an all-stock version of the RL-9. The engineers said they could build the ship themselves using no outsourced parts. We let them. It was an excellent reminder of why we outsource so much of our construction.

Info

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
