The Bat I is a midrange orbital rocket system intended for exploration of the Kerbin system. It lifts off using only the thrust of its six Kickback SRBs, Titan-III-style, with the central Skipper engine only igniting once the Kickbacks have burned out and been decoupled; after circularising with the Skipper, the craft can easily go to the Mun or Minmus (caution: I have not tested its ability to land on either of those bodies and return to orbit afterwards) using the core stage and the two Terrier-powered upper stages. The command pod on top has plenty of scientific equipment; alternatively (or additionally!), the crew cabin below can be used to store up to two (2) kerbals, be they tourists desiring adventure or crew desiring experience.

If you’re feeling brave, you can try landing the uppermost stage along with the crew module (it has a set of three landing legs to assist with this), or you can play it extra safe and jettison the stage prior to landing.

A stock rocket called Bat I. Built with 67 of the finest parts, its root part is mk1pod.v2.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.7.0.
