Here comes a rework of my old and beloved Dawn-3SLB and the oldest rover I built (originally carried by a Neutron-B).
The system is easy to handle and is having enough impulsion available to explore the different stock atmospheric planets and satellites of the System. However, it implies to realize an aerobrake maneuver to land on Laythe. This is volontary, in order to train to perform different small correction maneuvers for gravity assistance and aerobraking.
Dawn-3SLB has been reviewed to look a bit more closer to the real launcher Zenit-3SLB, the interstage between the first and second now being more realistic. The rover for its part is now enjoying an R.T.G. for the missions far from the Star, but still is equipped with its original solar panels, giving it all the energy needed to keep on rolling until the night, when the R.T.G. will take care of reloading it quick.

A stock rocket called Dawn-3SLB / Triviality Rover. Built with 169 of the finest parts, its root part is largeAdapter2.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.1.
