The Prometheus III series continues with the Prometheus III-B-23B which is a marriage between the Prometheus II LLV (minus the space capsule) and the Belle D upper stage. This is based on the Titan III-B/23B which was a Titan II launch vehicle with an Agena-D upper stage converted into a spy satellite (KH-8 Gambit) placed on top.
The launcher handles similarly to the Prometheus II except that the payload, meant for LKO (Low Kerbin Orbit), is a Belle-D converted into a spy satellite mock-up. While my test mission profile was placing a spy satellite into LKO it has enough fuel to handle much higher orbits well into HKO (High Kerbin Orbit).
The entire ascent process, including orbital circularization, is entirely handled by the first and second stages while the third stage can be used to boost the payload into a higher orbit, deorbit the payload, or with some modifications even be used for munar injection and orbit.

Don't forget, people build craft at all skill levels, just 'cos something is 'newbish' doesn't mean it needs hatin'.
It will cost you 5 of your own points to downvote
