The HLV-5C Cargo Rack is a modular component that allows HLV-5 Propulsion Modules to be reused for multiple cargo missions to the Mun surface. After an initial HLV-5 lander is sent to the Mun, cargo racks can be sent ahead by LITE reusable upper stages to be delivered to low Munar orbit. After the HLV-5 Propulsion Stage returns to Munar orbit, the cargo rack (and it’s payload) are decoupled from the LITE upper stage and docked to the HLV-5 for subsequent delivery to the surface.

Standard Launcher: ‘Lightning’ Medium Launcher
