The Agena Target Vehicle (ATV) was used to some degree of success in four separate Gemini missions to practice rendezvous and docking between two space vehicles, boost Gemini into a higher orbit, practice EVAs and perform a number of experiments including one with tethering and artifical gravity. The BDB approximation of the ATV is the BTV (Belle Target Vehicle) available in one of my other builds. This one I have dubbed the Extended BTV and includes a special materials bay as well as features to make EVAs more viable such as hand-holds next to the material bays as well as several lights.

The Muo lifter functions like other Muo lifters with the stage-and-a-half handling the entire ascent; the booster fairing should be ejected in the upper mid-atmosphere and the lifter is decoupled once reaching orbit. The lifter has several seperation motors should either put into a sub-orbital trajectory or at least move it to another orbit to eliminate potential dangers to the EBTV.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
