This is my build of the Fenris (Thor) rocket with a modified Belle A upper stage (Agena A) from Blue Dog Bureau. The Belle A upper stage has been modified into a rudimentary spy satellite much like the Agena-A was modified into the Corona C series satellite. However my version’s upper stage is simply provided with a parachute instead of a special re-entry vehicle.

The first stage is enough, or almost enough, to get you an steady orbit around 80km. The second stage can finish the orbit circularization and still has enough fuel to boost the payload even further and to deorbit it for re-entry.

EDIT:

Updated to KSP 1.2.2 with a complete rebuild and simplification of the upper stage.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
