Description

This is one of a pair of Kerbalized Apollo-15 craft, comparing with/without Making History.
The foldable wheels of the Making History pack are nice and make a fun rover.
Built in KSP version 1.6.1, 41 meters tall.

Too many stages for Kerbin; of course fewer stages would be more efficient.

Stages dV TWR:
Launch 1706m/s 1.7
Sustainter 2850m/s 0.9
Transfer 1736m/s 0.7
Orbiter 1154m/s 1.2
Lander 954m/s 2.4(!)(Mun)
Return 999m/s 5.6 (Mun)

Notes:
Wolfhound thrust limited 60%

There are separate decouplers beneath the engine clusters, instead of using the Engine Plates’ built-in decouplers.

The stage-2 Engine Plate’s decoupler is used to release the interstage tube after stage-2 engines fire.

Nothing attached to fuel tank inside the SM-25 (which would run into a reported bug about colliders). Instead, the smaller parts are attached to shelves.

SM-25 uses small surface attached tanks because only one internal node gets fuel flow (fuel lines would also work)
