Description

A stock rocket called AeroEquus 2a. Built with 42 of the finest parts, its root part is mk1pod.v2.

The stock AeroEquus rocket that comes with the game is perfectly flyable, but has a number of disadvantages; for instance, there’s no heatshield (so reentries from transmunar space can be a bit toasty), and it has a fairly small battery capacity and no way to recharge the batteries (so you need to be really careful to conserve electricity to avoid running the batteries flat and thereby losing the ability to control the vehicle).

So, naturally…

  • The AeroEquus 2a has several small OX-STAT solar panels on both the command pod and the upper stage, allowing it to recharge its batteries anywhere there’s sunlight.
  • I’ve added a heatshield to the base of the command pod, greatly reducing the danger of burning up during high-speed reentries.
  • A small RCS tank atop the command pod, plus a set of four thrusters, allow for easier fine manoeuvring.
  • The addition of an OKTO2 probe core to the nose of the craft allows it to be flown unmanned - for instance, to test mission profiles or send a 2a on a one-way flight.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.9.0.
