The successful launch of the Ariane 1 rocket on Christmas Eve 1979 was the sorely needed success for Western European countries to finally have their own launch system and no longer needing to rely on the United States. The success heralded one of the most successful rocket families to date with the Ariane 4 being launched in 1988. It was one of the most successful rockets within the Ariane family and between 1988 and 2003 made 113 successful launches with only 3 failures. The 44L model was the most powerful and final Ariane 4 rocket to be launched and doubled its payload capacity by adding four liquid fuel boosters.

The Aliyana 4-44L is an approximation of the Ariane 4-44L using primarily CONTARES parts which is rated to lift a 4 tonne satellite into Kerbin Synchronous Orbit (KSO) at virtually any desired inclination. This is double the payload capacity over the Aliyana 4-40. I have included a more advanced experimental communication satellite which can be the beginning of your own KSO communication network.

The first and most powerful stage is fired along with the booster stage. The booster stage will probably exhausted itself in the upper atmosphere. It can be easily decoupled while the main stage continues well into space. The second stage is relatively short-lived and continues the ascent process. The third stage is built to function optimally in a vacuum and continues both the direct to Kerbin Synchronous Orbit (KSO) and handles the orbital circularization. It is highly recommended that your payload include the ability to fine-tune its own final orbit.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
