Description

Can move and capture even huge asteroids. Utilizing 3 nuclear engines on extended pods and the magic of Heaviest Part Auto-struts it can move an asteroid stably at full thrust even at 4X physics speed. Utilizing its asteroid mining equipment it can run its engines up to 95% thrust on in situ manufactured fuel alone, allowing for continues thrusting until the asteroid is depleted of resources.

  • Comes with a crew capacity of up to 4 but can operate without a crew, though engineers are needed to improve productivity and thermal management.
  • Utilizes bi-propellant RCS for attitude control of a multiple kiloton asteroid.
  • Comes with Solar Pods that can be placed about the asteroid in order to ensure enough solar power regardless of orientation.
  • Comes with its own booster to get it into orbit, needs to be assembled in orbit by detaching and extending the engine arms.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.4.5.
