  1. LK-1 costs 16555 funds and Titan IIIc costs 39376 funds Gemini lander costs 7546 funds and the R7-type costs 40582 funds US costs = 46922 and USSR costs = 57137
  2. Hi ! This is my entry for the third mission, the Mun landing. The first rocket of this mission, a R7-type, carries the lander, inspired by this 1961 study for a Gemini mission to the Moon. The second one is the same rocket I used for my second mission of this challenge, to travel around the Mun: a Titan IIIc carrying a LK-1 spacecraft Link to the mission report
  3. So, this is my entry for the second step of the challenge, the mun orbiter. I decided to use the abandoned soviet LK-1 (1962-1965) project, using a VA capsule as my spacecraft. To launch it to the Mun, I designed an american Titan IIIc rocket. Link to the mission report
  4. I didn't have enough power with 20 Sparks engines I don't use them as air-breathing engines, and they look cool enough for RD-107/108
  5. Hi ! Thanks for the challenge ! This is my entry for the Robotic Mun Exploration. My orbiter, launched from an Atlas Agena D rocket, is based on the US Lunar Orbiter program, but without solar panels (designed before the rule change). My lander, launched from a Molniya (R7) rocket is based on the Luna E-6 (which was used for Luna 4 to Luna 9) platform from the soviet Luna program Link to the orbiter report Link to the lander report
  6. Damn, that was exactly my planned rocket
  7. I'm working on it. What do you mean by spin-stabilized btw ?
  8. So, I finally landed it on the runway ! Here is the mission report
  9. Thanks for the badges ! The shuttle is fully stock, the ET is (from top to bottom): Rocket Nose Mk7 Kerbodyne ADTP-2-3 adapter 5x Kerbodyne S3-3600 tanks 3x Kerbodyne S3-7200 tanks 4x Tail Fin Oh, and I already landed a shuttle on the runway for STS v3
  10. Thanks for continuing this thread @michal.don ! This is my entry for mission 1a and 1b. Didn't land quite on the airport so I will try it another day Link to the mission report Stock, with KER as support mod
  11. @Skylon It is. Last rule of the challenge
  12. Hello ! Can you tell me what system you disable, because I don't have the problem on my side. Thanks
  13. Thanks for the review, it's really well done ! We modified our plane to fix the problems; the steering system has been disabled and we added some flaps to have more drag and lift during landing. The landing procedure has also been improved and thrust reversal can be used to slow down the aircraft before touch-down (with the Brake action group). Pizio & Hartmann Co. presents its new Small Regional Jet family, Bluebell Technical Specifications for the Bluebell A+ : 1 pilot and 32 passengers Weight of 14.12 tons Length of 18.26m; Width of 20.92m; Height of 4.76m Range of 2200km Cruise altitude at 8000m (or 26000 feet) Cruise speed at 860km/h (or 239m/s) Take-off speed at 55m/s Price of 21,122,000$ Technical Specifications for the Bluebell B : 1 pilot and 40 passengers Weight of 16.16 tons Length of 20.14m; Width of 20.92m; Height of 4.82m Range of 2300km Cruise altitude at 9300m (or 30500 feet) Cruise speed at 900km/h (or 250m/s) Take-off speed at 65m/s Price of 22,891,000$ Files on KerbalX : https://kerbalx.com/Andiron/PH-Co-Bluebell-A+ and https://kerbalx.com/Andiron/PH-Co-Bluebell-B With two bigger, but still efficient, engines provided by our partner Rigau-Ros S.A., the Bluebell B is a jack-of-all-trades to bring your clients faster and further away. With its low stall speed at around 140km/h (or 40m/s) and thrust reversal engines, it's capable of landing on most airports or airstrips all around Kerbin.
  14. Thanks for the challenge, Keptin. Here is my craft : Pizio & Hartmann Co. presents its new Small Regional Jet, the Bluebell A Technical Specifications : 1 pilot and 32 passengers Weight of 13.92 tons Length of 18.3m; Width of 20.9m; Height of 4.8m Range of 2200km Cruise altitude of 8000m (or 26000 feet) Cruise speed of 860km/h (or 239m/s) Take-off speed of 55m/s Price of 19,215,000$ File on KerbalX : https://kerbalx.com/Andiron/PH-Co-Bluebell-A With a design inspired by the Bombardier Dash-8 (production license pending) and two very fuel-efficient jet engines, the Bluebell A is a good compromise between speed, range and economy. Its huge wingspan allows the plane to have short take-offs and landings (STOL), thus it can land on most airports all around Kerbin.
  15. Two separate launches in different orbits. It also might be a good idea to make the Vincin capsule 3rd launch a docking test mission Thanks !
