Description

TugboatLight should be able to handle all of your stock docking needs. The three reaction wheels make it particularly sturdy for moving large craft. ¨¨This tugboat was inspired by RoboTug XL created by user LitaAlto 2016.03.17.

BoilerPlate

A stock rocket called TugboatLight. Built with 59 of the finest parts, its root part is dockingPortLarge.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.1.0.

59 Parts?

This is more parts than other tugs because of the static solar panels. It’s easy to bump solar panels off a tug so I thought it was important to include more panels spaced out.

Lights?

I chose the round lights because they throw light further.

Control?

The three reaction wheel points give you very fine grain control.

The RCS ports are aligned carefully balancing the center of mass between.

Action Groups?

The landing gear action group is set to deploy the klaw.
The 1 key is set to attach.
The 2 key is set to disconnect.

Recommendations?

Any mods that offer the circling lights look really fantastic on this. If you have that part option, throw on on either side.
