The Sarnus I-C is a cheaper and simpler replacement for the Sarnus I-B designed to perform the same missions with the same parameters. The first stage’s engine cluster has been replaced by a single nozzle with more than 1500 kN of thrust while the second stage has largely been unmodified. The result is 5 tons lighter and about 2,000 credits cheaper.

The payload is a Kane-11 CSM that simulates the Apollo 7 payload and weighs approximately 14.5 tonnes. It has been given just enough monopropellent, ablative shielding, liquid fuel, and oxidizer for extended missions in LKO (Low Kerbin Orbit). The spacecraft can be used for docking and rendezvous missions with adequately equipped stations and spacecraft and thus can also simulate the Skylab missions and the ASTP if so desired.

If your planned missions require extensive use of the SPS engine then I recommend conserving your electric supply as best as you can and remembering that you need a bit of thrust left for deorbit and reentry.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
