So a few months ago, I got interested in the Proton design and did some research on it. I was surprised to see that its first stage had engines only one its "Strap-on boosters". I mean it doesn't have strap on boosters! But only today, I found a video that kinda annoyed me. This guy's Proton was incredibly unrealistic as it had six solid rocket boosters and a main tank which the real Proton doesn't. But that brought up a question. Why doesn't it use those six engine holder booster thingys as actual strap on booster with a middle engine? I mean it works in Kerbal Space Program! But jokes aside, why did the soviet union choose to build it like this? Also if anyone doesn't know how the Proton works, here: Also here is a replica I made tonight: So does anyone know why this is? Thanks Fire
Welcome,welcome fellow kerbonauts! Today i want to show my favourite rocket! The Proton K,as we all know was used to put the Salyut/Alamaz space stations into orbit and is right now the soviets most reliable heavy lift rocket.It has three stages.So today in the space craft exchange i built a (sort off) Proton K,so here it is!
