After soliciting feedback from astronauts, a series of improvements were made to the Kerbal X, and the resulting design was christened the Kerbal X’ (pronounced Kerbal X Prime or simply Prime for short).¨¨The original X’s landing-legs and reboarding ladder are sacrificed in exchange for the addition of a docking port, RCS thrusters, and 4 tanks of monopropellant to the Prime. To accommodate the docking-port, the original nosecone parachute is replaced with a pair of radially-attached chutes on the sides of the capsule, and a pair of drogue-chutes. The batteries are moved to the top of the service-module fuel-tank, the solar-panels are upgraded to SP-L 1x6 deployable arrays, and an HG-5 antenna is added opposite the Communotron DTS-M1. To provide a way to recharge batteries in absence of sunlight, a fuel-cell is fitted betwixt the batteries, offset to balance the antennas’ mass, thus centering mass for the RCS-thrusters to enable docking maneuvers. To enhance crew survivability, an escape-system is attached to the docking port, and can be jettisoned once safely out of the atmosphere.¨¨This version also uses the booster from the Kerbal X Slim to keep part-count low.

A stock rocket called Kerbal X Prime Slim. Built with 75 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1-2Pod.
