This is my build of the Chryslus II launch vehicle carrying the Amba probe which are Blue Dog Design Bureau’s versions of the Juno II rocket and the Pioneer 3 or 4 lunar flyby probe. The rocket itself uses a Chryslus II for the lower stage and three stages of Vicenza solid rockets for the upper stages in a manner similar to the Etoh Vicenza (Redstone-Sargent).
The mission profile is very imprecise and takes a bit of practice to get the Amba probe into a munar flyby, although a minmunar flyby mission is also possible. There is also a good chance that it will end up in an orbit around Kerbol which is happened with Pioneer 4 (and its still, in theory, circling the Sun to this day).
The first stage should be enough to get the probe into a circularized orbit while the second stage (Vicenza-11) should get you into the right flyby trajectory making the third and fourth stages unnecessary for a basic flyby. The additional stages could be used to achieve a munar impact, move it further into escape velocity, or simply be discarded.
Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
