Description

A bigger version of the stock Acapello, with a large second stage, powered by five Skiffs, inserted between the Mastodon-powered first stage and an enlarged single-Skiff upper stage. The addition of a second stage makes it more closely resemble the real-life Saturn V, at least if you overlook the four Kickback solid-fuelled boosters added to enable the rocket to lift off the pad.

The second stage’s thrust-to-weight ratio is pretty low, so it’s best to fly a fairly steep first-stage trajectory and hold a high pitch attitude during second-stage flight to keep the vehicle from falling back into Kerbin’s atmosphere before it can get up to orbital speed.

As with most (okay, all, with the exception of the short-duration-flight-optimised Acapello H orbital refuelling tanker) of my Acapello derivatives, the CSM has four added solar panels for non-resource-consuming electricity production.

A stock rocket called Acapello C. Built with 207 of the finest parts, its root part is LiquidEngineLV-T91.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.10.0.
