  • Class: ship
  • Part Count: 315
  • Pure Stock

Dart V3.0 contains a rover at the top of the rocket and a return pod in the hull. It is designed to reach Eve after a full refuel at Minmus (you will need to use your own refuel ship) and will reach Eve when played carefully with the usage of small aerobraking maneuvers. The Rover can be ejected once landed. After refueling it will drop all the unnecessary parts to make return to orbit as light as possible. While above the atmosphere use the recovery pod to abandon the main ship and circularize the orbit. You will need a recovery vehicle in low orbit to recover the crew.
