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-E which is an approximation of the Delta-E.

The Daleth-E is effectively just a Fenris-Alphastar rocket with the addition of three small booster rockets which pushes the Daleth-E’s otherwise low TWR into a more optimum range well into the mid-atmosphere. The boosters are non-detachable and continue with the first stage all the way into orbit. I recommend an orbit of somewhere between 75 and 100km afterwards using the upper stage to accomplish your actual mission.

The primary role of the Daleth-E is launching payloads of 500-900kg into high MKO (Medium Kerbin Orbit) as well as into KEO (Kerbisynchronous Equatorial Orbit) for communication satellites. The KEO altitude of 2,863,334.06 meters is what separates MKO from HKO (High Kerbin Orbit) and is the most common location for building communication satellite networks such as KerbNet.

I have included the same test satellite that I included with my Fenris Alphastar build but the additional capabilities of the Daleth-E will allow for MKO operations into KEO relay missions and possibly even missions to the Mun and Minmus with some effort.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
