Krog34 posted a topic in The Spacecraft ExchangeKatyusha Rocket Launcher Truck KerbalX Craft File Here I've had this idea for a long time about connecting a lot SAS controllers and a claw in some manner in order to create some sort of stock hinge. I've finally gotten this setup to work nice and smooth. A grip of different wheels act as a nice cushy bearing housing for the weapons cylinder. In the above GIF you can see the setup process. Stage once to activate fuel cells and separate the craft, the cylinder separates from the bottom while the weapons rack separates and then re-attaches at the top ultimately creating two separate crafts. After setup, control from the probe core at the front to take proper control of the weapons rack. Make sure SAS is on or you'll have no control! As a unique feature, you can toggle the "Free Pivot" option on the claw in order to take advantage of free motion as the above GIF shows. You can do this with the rockets loaded, but it is more of a balancing act. The Ore Tanks at the front of the rack act as a counterweight and can be dumped by pressing 2 when necessary.
