The Thor-Ablestar was an upgrade of the Thor-Able rocket and made twelve successful launches in the early 1960s mostly of spy and navigation satellites. It was simpler than the Thor-Able with only two liquid stages and a greater lift capacity. The Fenris Alphastar is BDD’s approximation of the Thor-Ablestar and is designed to handle payloads around 1,000 kg (1t) into LKO (Low Kerbal Orbit).

The first stage uses the typical Fenris first stage and handles most of the ascent into the edge of space after which the second stage takes over for circularization and other altitude adjustments. The second stage has a relatively low thrust so your payload may have to make its own adjustments if you need a precise altitude.

I have included a 980kg test relay satellite but it can be replaced by any other similar payload.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
