    Stock Proton K/D

    Proton The Proton was born as the "UR-500", a two-stage super heavy ICBM. With the addition of a third stage it was reworked to serve as a heavy launch platform for the Soviet Union. It was then named "Proton-K" after some of its first payloads, the Proton satellites. In its decades of service it launched a wide array of missions, from space stations to interplanetary probes and landers. The K/D version uses the "Block D" upper stage in its stack. This stage was originally used to boost unmanned Zond spacecraft around the moon. It was later used to boost probes as far as Mars and Venus. (Left) Proton K/DM carrying the EchoStar VIII satellite launched in 2002. (Right) My Proton K/D replica built in KSP at 3/4 scale. Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 4, Block D If you'd like to see the rest of the mission (Venera 9) you can read about it here: https://imgur.com/a/dTFtu6p The craft was built in stock KSP v1.5.1, using 493 parts. Stage timings written in the description. Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9crpw4exedgcrz3/Proton-K D-1.craft?dl=0

    Hot Staging

    Has anyone tried hot-staging in KSP? Is it even possible to do without destroying the rocket trying to do it? I've been trying to get something working with Tantares, but I keep blowing stuff up. I'm thinking of just using MM configs to edit Max temps and such on the proper parts. Any ideas?

    smaller proton variants

    It looks like ILS has decided to develop 2 stage of the proton to launch smaller payloads. they are going to use the breeze m as a second stage and remove the original second stage and expand the first. they also plan to make one with four engines instead of 6 http://spaceflightnow.com/2016/09/22/smaller-variants-of-russias-proton-rocket-on-the-market/
  4. 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
