The Delta rocket family began with the addition of the Ablestar upper stage to the Thor rocket and has spawned numerous variations and improvements since 1960 with a success rate of 95%. The Daleth series is Blue Dog Bureau’s approximation of several of the Delta rockets including this one, the Daleth-1000 which is an approximation of the Delta-1000 which was an upgrade of the Delta-E.

The Daleth-1000 replaces and extends the fuel tanks of the first stage and doubles the number of booster rockets with similar performance to the Daleth-E. It can perform any of the same missions of the Daleth-E with the addition of being able to perform munar missions with a similar payload of 700-900kg.

The first stage will handle ascent and initial orbiting process (+/- 20 dv) with the second stage handling the TMI (Trans Munar injection) burn and can even perform the orbital burn if necessary. However I recommend that any munar payload include an engine capable of performing the retrograde orbital burn so that you can get rid of the second stage instead of also placing it in munar orbit.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
