A stock rocket called Molniya. Built with 256 of the finest parts, its root part is not largeAdapter2, KerbalX seems to have an issue with root part detection on craft that have been rerooted.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.3.
Crude and simple recreation of the Molniya rocket with Molniya
relay satellite for launching into Molniya orbits. The Molniya lifter is derived from the R7 family of ICBMs, making it largely the same in appearance as the Soyuz launcher and, by default, configured for hot staging of the
third stage. The probe is a relay satellite using a high eccentricity, high inclination (63.4 degrees semi synchonous) orbit to
hang over the norther hemisphere for long periods of time, allowing coverage of locations usually inaccessible to geosynch satellites (or getting higher contrast pictures from orbit if your camera technology isn’t quite on par with that of your international rival). This particular inclination is predominantly chosen to reduce orbital perturbation due to the asymmetric nature of the Earth’s gravitational field (something we don’t have to worry about in Kerbal). The sat itself, being built in 1.1.3, is not functional as a relay in 1.2. Relay upgrade sold separately.
