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 24% 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 6 but can operate without a crew. Utilizes bi-propellant RCS for attitude control of a multiple kiloton asteroid.

Designed to be assembled in orbit, takes three Xylan 4 flights to assembled (not including assembly station).

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
