  2. Full Scale, Full Stock, Full Function On April 21, 1981, STS Columbia launched for the first time. Just as Yuri Gagarin’s first flight exactly 20 years earlier, Columbia opened up a new era of space flight. The Shuttle provided an unparalleled capability to service satellites in orbit, providing a flexible base of operations for seven astronauts for two weeks in low earth orbit. It is not too much of an exaggeration to say that without the shuttle we wouldn’t have Hubble, the ISS, and many, many scientific advancements. About the replica This craft began about five months ago, as I realized that I was rapidly approaching 100 craft uploads on KerbalX. I wanted something BIG to mark the milestone. This craft went through two major revisions, and countless minor revisions. Of note, this craft wouldn’t be where it is without the help of @HB Stratos who took my poorly made cargo bay and made it work 100% of the time. Additionally, this craft deserved a proper craft video. I'm really proud of it, give it a watch: Flight Manual Launch Orbital and Payload Operations Reentry and Landing Download Link https://kerbalx.com/servo/11-STS Enjoy! This is a difficult craft to fly, but I promise you, it's well worth it.
  3. Huge thanks to @Azimech, whose incredible advice made this craft pososible. This craft is a full stock, 1:1 scale replica of the Boeing Pelican Ultra, a cargo ekranoplan/aircraft. This Colossus would have carried massive amounts of military hardware long distances, primarily across the sea to maximize fuel efficiency. However, it never made it past the concept stage, and now only exists in the form of vague specifications and inconsistent artist renditions. Having taken 5 months to complete, being composed of just under 3,000 parts, weighing in at 1.8 kiltons, with a wing span of 150 meters and being 120 meters in length, this craft is by far the largest and most ambitious project I have ever undertaken. The craft is also full to the brim of stock mechanisms. It utilizes 4 of my T-4650 stock turboprops, which together produce nearly 19,000 kN of thrust. The craft’s entire nose section rotates upwards to reveal the cargo bay, this is made possible with what is perhaps the largest stock joint ever created. The joint in question is made up of an orange tank that is held within a fairing precisely tuned to its diameter. It also features a ramp, which is incredibly mundane by comparison. All this work on to ensure that the craft could feasibly be used to transport payloads would have been for naught if the craft didn’t actually have any payload capabilities. Fortunately, this craft can easily carry payloads of well over 1000 tonnes, although it’s exact upper limit is as yet unknown. To get this beast into the air, a huge number of hidden control surfaces are used. The center of lift is also placed in front of the center of mass to ensure that it flies nice and easily.

    A-10 Warthog replica

    Here is my A-10 Warthog. The A-10 is a ground-attack aircraft made by Fairchild Republic. The first flight was in 1972 and is in use by the United States Air Force, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command. I think the design is really good and it's overall a cool aircraft.

  5. 1:1 Scale Replicas Full stock, full scale, full power In a scaled-down universe filled with scaled-down Kerbals, it's easy to forget how big real planes are. F-15 Eagles and F-14 Tomcats are over 60 feet long, dwarfing pilots and ground crews. Cargo planes are absolutely massive, with the C-5 Galaxy coming in at almost 250 feet long with 220 feet of wingspan. Additionally, the amount of detail that can be achieved in a replica is limited by size - parts are only so small. 1:1 replicas can better mimic profiles, cockpits, and wing shapes, making them as visually accurate as possible.

  6. Hi, this is my first post here! The Dassault/Dornier alphajet is a lightweight aircraft used by the Patrouille de France as a training craft, and also used for the national day, July 14th As a French myself, I love this little guy, so I built a replica. I used some of @Servos technique to build it, making it as smooth as I could! I made a little video to present it: and here are some few screenshots: Download link: https://kerbalx.com/Coca992/DassaultDornier-Alphajet Hope you'll enjoy it!

    The Gemini Replica Thread

    The Gemini Replica Thread Here is a place to put all your Gemini replicas, as well as unused propoals (i.e. Big Gemini) An excerpt from the Wikipedia page about project Gemini: Project Gemini was NASA's second human spaceflight program. Conducted between projects Mercury and Apollo, Gemini started in 1961 and concluded in 1966. The Gemini spacecraft carried a two-astronaut crew. Ten Gemini crews flew low Earth orbit (LEO) missions during 1965 and 1966, putting the United States in the lead during the Cold War Space Race against the Soviet Union. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Gemini ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here is my list of Gemini recreations! (All stock) This is one is one of my first. Not exactly first, but, it is the first time I used the Communitron 88-88 as a sort of "Multi Layer Inlusation Foil". This is one is orbiting the Mun, as part of a contract to get science data from around the Mun. Onto advanced Gemini, we see here a Centaur upper satage docked with Gemini. As Kerbin is a little bit small, this craft would be overkill for a Mun orbit and landing. Instead I sent it to Duna, and land there instead. (Note that I did put an SPS engine in the back) Since KSP models planets a lot smaller than in real life (what is that?), the Titan II that I recreated had enough Delta V to send a Gemini capule, adapter tank and engine to the Mun. So technically it actually is a Gemini Direct Ascent craft . And the Titan II craft which delivers most of my Gemini craft into low orbit. I remember there was a thread about the Titan rocket family, but forgot where it went. I should post the link at the bottom when I find the thread. And Finaly, the last image, showing a Gemini rescuing a stricken Lunar Ascent Stage being rescued by a Gemini Space Craft (No Anti-Aliasing, so all pictures look like MS-DOS games)

    Stock F-1 + J-2

    The F-1 and J-2 were both developed by Rocketdyne in the late 1950's and 1960's. Both engines famously powered the Saturn V with 5 F-1 engines being utilized on block S-IC, as well as 5 and 1 J-2 engines being utilized on block S-II and S-IVB respectively. The J-2 also saw service on the Saturn IB, with a single J-2 powering the rocket's second stage. Both engines recently saw modernized versions, those being the J-2X and the F-1B, these engines saw great performance increases over the original versions and each were slated for use on the in-development SLS. Although this is no longer the case, and furthur development on the J-2X and F-1B have been cancelled. J-2 Engine Information: -Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7fp60mogogwt393/J-2.craft?dl=0 -Part Count: 41 This is a stock replica of the J-2 engine, the primary goal of this replica was to replicate the engine’s design as much as possible while maintaining a reasonable part count. the engine is the same size and produces a similar amount of thrust as the J-2, however certain statics were simply impossible to replicate using stock parts. The engine is powered by a single KS-25.

F-1 Engine Information: -Download Link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aie6xjpg39b23fx/F-1.craft?dl=0 -Part Count: 94 This is actually a simplified version of another F-1 that I had posted, this version is only slightly less detailed yet has about 40 less parts. This fact also made the process of building this engine significantly simpler and easier than that of the J-2, along with the abundance of information available on the F-1 compared to the J-2 due to its far greater popularity. This engine is powered by 8 KS-25 engines. Yes, the Mainsail is just for show.

  12. The F-15C Eagle was a development of the F-15A air superiority fighter which introduced a glass cockpit, modernized avionics and new weapon systems. It also extended the F-15s range which was sub-par in the first versions. The F-15 up to this day stands as a backbone of the USAF and is one of the most successful air superiority fighters to ever enter service. Built with the not a pound for air to ground doctrine in mind it combines superior aerodynamics with high wing area and lifting body design to acheive unsurpassed energy retention and maneuverability. AG1 controls the afterburners. CRAFT LINK: https://kerbalx.com/EvenFlow/F-15C-Eagle v1.0 - Initial release v1.1 - Wing strakes smoothed out v1.2 - Horizontal stabilizers control authority has been adjusted, maneuverability increased by a small margin. v1.3 - Engine position tweaked to be more realistic and seamless, dry thrust values adjusted to match the real Eagle’s top speed at sea level, subtle improvement of aerodynamics resulting in a 10m/s increase of top speed at sea level. v1.4 - Rigidity of the nose assembly improved. v1.5 - Strutting improved, some miniscule part displacement behavior after discarding fuel tanks has been fixed. v1.6 - Strutting further improved, part displacement when staging is now as far as I can see inexistent. Fuel flow order adjusted to maintain better maneuverability with lower fuel supply. v1.7 - Roll rate massively improved, horizontal control surfaces adjusted to better match the shape of the actual F-15. v2.0 - Complete rework of the airframe and the canopy.

    Stock SABRE Engine Replica

    This is a stock 1:1 replica of the SABRE hypersonic precooled hybrid air-breathing rocket engine currently being developed by Reaction Engines Limited. This engine is slated for prospective use on a variety of hypersonic aircraft, although most famously for the Skylon launch vehicle. I would suggest throttling down slightly before switching over to rocket mode, this isn’t strictly neccessary but I found that the sudden burst of thrust from the Vectors occasionally caused the engine to explode. This engine is powered by 8 R.A.P.I.E.R.s and 4 KS-25 engines.

    GP7000 Turbofan Replica

    This is a stock replica of the GP7000 Turbofan developed by Engine Alliance, a joint venture between General Electric and Pratt & Whitney. This replica’s central feature is definitely its spinning turbine, which is functionally a turboshaft as it is powered by two Juno’s set to very low power. This method of spinning the turbine means that the turbine actually throttles with the actual engines, which is obviously super cool. This engine uses 3 Wheesley’s which in total provide similar thrust to the real thing. The one downside of this engine is that you will need to place intakes in a seperate location on your craft, as there is no way of incorporating intakes into the engine itself. Download Link: https://kerbalx.com/Kronus_Aerospace/GP7000 Part Count: 113 Engine Mass: 9.97 tonnes Engine Thrust: 330 kN
  17. The AJS 37 Viggen was the final iteration of the succesful strike fighter introduced into Swedish Air Force service in 1971 as a replacement for the dated subsonic Saab 32 Lansen and the 50s-borne Saab 35 Draken which formed the backbone of Sweden's aerial capability at the time. The modernized AJS variant offered extended reconaissance capabilities and other improvements over the previous AJ models which enabled it to carry more modern weaponry. Speaking of software, the Viggen was one of the very first production combat aircraft to introduce a flight computer. Structurally, the main difference is the lack of the distinctive "tooth" on the vertical stabilizer. The vast majority of the updates made to the AJS variant lie under the hood in shape of modern software and a brand new electronic warfare suite. DESIGN: The Viggen was a unique design, perhaps the closest we've ever come to a modern biplane. It's main delta-configuration wing featured variable leading edge angle along it's span and multiple pylons for carrying a vast array of weapons - from dumb bombs and rockets, through the newest AIM-120B air-to-air missiles in some of the later modifications to the massive and heavy-hitting Rb-04 and Rb-05 anti ship missiles. The front canard is unusually big and provides a substantial amount of lift. This part of the airframe is perhaps the most important contribution to the Viggen's STOL capabilities. Viggen's uniqueness does not end here though. It is one of the only fighter aircraft featuring a sophisticated thrust reverser similar to those used in commercial airliners. It both shortens it's landing distance and enables it to reverse by itself. This quasi-reverse-gear enabled the Viggen to perform quick, turnarounds on runways. This maneuver has become one of the Viggen trademarks due to how often it was performed in demonstration flights in front of the public. This multirole jet was a sturdy, easy-to-maintain and reliable platform suitable for the harsh Scandinavian enviroments. It could operate from rural roads, small airports and formed the backbone of Swedish air power in the latter half of the 20th century. Oddly enough, it never found recognition outside of it's origin country despite numerous efforts to export the Viggen being undertaken throughout it's service. The AJS-variant Viggen was phased out of service in 2005, but a single 37 (serial no. 37098) has been restored to a flyable condition by the Swedish Air Force. It can sometimes be seen performing demonstrations at airshows all over Europe. Now you can take it to the Kerbin skies in this ugly murderous duckling from the land of Vikings and IKEA and kill some Soviet shipping on the Baltic Sea. OPERATING THE RB-04: This AJS 37 replica features a functional payload of two Rb-04 missiles on it's wing pylons. These missiles are fully controllable and can be used to strike targets at over 70km away. They can be operated extremely easily: When jettisoned through staging, a rocket motor is instantly activated and gives the missile the initial push of acceleration before the Juno motor spools up. After the missile is fired all you need to do is switch to the missile via your vessel switch key and guide it to it's target with control input. Cruising speed of the Rb-04 sits at around 370m/s. FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS: The Viggen is a very simple machine to fly, albeit it requires some care especially when it's loaded up with missiles. With missiles on their pylons the Viggen has low ground clearance so care should be taken not to slam down too hard when landing as this can damage the missiles. The Viggen is capable of 347m/s flight at sea level, but with stores under the wings this speed drops by about 10m/s. At high altitudes Mach 2+ flight is easily attainable. Yaw control is very responsive and can help push the Viggen through turns faster than usual. Deep stall speed is very low sitting at around 45m/s. Optimal approach speed sits at around 60m/s. AG1 activated the afterburner and Brake key deploys the airbrake under the fuselage. Have fun flying the fighter jet equivalent of an IKEA table. Multirole, sturdy and simplistic.

  18. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's safe ejection from the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle, I put one together in KSP. The LLRV (and subsequent LLTV (Training)), were created to allow Apollo lunar landing pilots a way to practice landings without leaving Earth. The coolest thing (I didn't know) was that the central jet engine wasn't actually controlled by the pilot... it was on a separate mount with massive 20 degree plus gimbal, and automatically controlled to maintain a vertical orientation, even when the main frame was tilted 20+ degrees. This allowed the jet engine to be throttle to provide only 5/6 of the thrust needed to keep the craft aloft... effectively simulating the 1/6 Earth gravity of the moon. The remaining 1/6+ thrust had to come from main rocket engines, mounted on the tilting frame, to simulate the actual control and design of the lunar landers. Pilots used RCS to control the attitude (pitch, yaw, and roll) of the frame, and main rockets... the jet engine simply made it "weigh" 5/6 less than it really did. The LLRVs were limited by the available thrust of the central jet engine, and had be be balanced front to back so the craft could VTOL without flipping out.... If you build VTOL craft, you know what I mean. RCS Build Aid is your friend! Luckily, the designers included an ejection seat in that limited mass. As the LLRV was in no way suited to gliding, if something went wrong, there needed to be a way to get the pilot to safely. Even at 2.5 million bucks a pop, preserving the pilot was far more important than saving the machine. Totally doable in Kerbal, and the same balance rules apply. (There are lots of ejection seat outtakes https://www.twitch.tv/dasvaldez/clips To make all this work in Kerbal, there's a simple krakentech bearing in the middle, which separates the jet engine structure from the rest of the frame. The Jet engine has fuel, a probecore, and plenty of intakes, and is is throttled down to .83 TWR (5/6 G) and set to SAS hold radial out before decoupling. The jet engine continues to fly vertically, holding up 5/6 of the weight of the craft... and the TWR < 1 makes it fall, so the pilot has to control the main frame and use rockets to account for the other 1/6th. You can download the craft from KerbalX.. best flown out at the Dessert Airfield if you have it. https://kerbalx.com/KSpaceAcademy/KSA-X-KLLRV Entire build is on Twitch, which is half ejection seat shenanigans, if you've got 5-6 hours. Enjoy!
  19. The ISS Replica Project Over the past three years of playing KSP, I have made many stations, and about a third of those were attempts at making our beautiful ISS. Of all my attempts, the one that got the furthest only got as far as the Z1 truss, and it was hardly accurate. So this time, I decided that I would go all out and build the most visually accurate ISS replica I can possibly manage, module by module, and share it with you guys! My goal will be to build the modules, and put them in orbit with realistic launch vehicles, to be constructed in a realistic fashion, while providing educational shorts explaining the purposes and capabilities of each module (soontm). I hope you enjoy the ride! A modlist required to run the WHOLE PACK (lists for the individual modules are included in their sections) can be found here: Module 1: Zarya After around two weeks of solid work on my Zarya replica, it is finally (at least for now) finished! You may have seen it in other parts of the forum, but it is now up for download, and ready to go to space. The Zarya module (meaning 'sunrise' in Russian) was the first module of the International Space Station. Launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome, November 20th, 1998, it marked the dawn of a cooperative relationship between the space programs of the USA and Russia towards a common goal of a habitat in space. The main purpose of Zarya on launch was to provide propulsion and power to the Zarya - Unity module pair while waiting for Zvezda to launch and dock with the station, which would offer a more permanent propulsion solution. Based off proven technology developed in the Mir programme (for which Zarya was originally intended to be part of), Zarya was based off the already proven TKS-derived module technology. Ever since Zvezda docked, Zarya took a secondary role, and is now a main part of the ROS living quarters and fuel storage for the Zvezda booster system.

  23. Updated for KSP 1.4! Yes yes, shuttles are old news now, but I still love them so here's an update for all you Shuttle huggers out there. New for KSP 1.4 - Uses new 1.4 parts for proper size ratios between ET/Shuttle/boosters - Solved SAS launch oscillation (was due to change in stability algorithms or something, since the control nodes are always offset from the centre of mass it was messing up badly) - Fully certified for 40+T of cargo with zero modifications. Just load her up and go. Tested to 1500km with Mullet Dyne fuel pod https://kerbalx.com/Speeding_Mullet/Mullet-Dyne-40t-Fuel-Pod Space Shuttle "Resolution" The HMS Resolution was one of James Cook’s ships (One of which was Endeavour of course). As well, there was apparently once an enthusiast recreation of the shuttle cockpit that was named Resolution. So I thought it an appropriate for a KSP recreation by another shuttle enthusiast. Download: https://kerbalx.com/crafts/14202 New 1.2 SSME Fuel flow view! New for this version! Uses new KSP SSMEs Certified to launch 0 to 68T (4 full Ore tanks to 100km!) Vernier engines as well as RCS for maneuvering Redesigned OMS pods now use Fuel+Oxidizer rather than Monoprop. Shares fuel with fuel cells and vernier thrusters. SSME fuel is still isolated from rest of shuttle systems so you can safely burn to ET fuel exhaustion and still have OMS fuel remaining! hybrid boosters (SRB integrated in LRBs to provide a bit of extra thrust and more dramatic exhaust effects) Multiple control points for optimal control during Launch/Orbit/Docking/Re-entry (see details here) Reduced part count! 1.0.x Shuttle still available here: http://kerbalx.com/crafts/1923/ Sample payloads: ISS Replica modules Features: * Does NOT rely on Reaction Wheels to fly! * Ability to perform Single-Engine-Out aborts like STS-51F. Depending on when the engine goes out, you may or may not make orbit! (just like real shuttle!) * Realistic "twang" effect on SSME ignition * Realistic fuel load (Oxidizer above Fuel) * Realistic braking system (main landing gear brakes only, front landing gear steering only) * Braking drogue chute * Action groups allow for OMS assist during launch * Fuel cell powered, use EDO pallet if you want extended duration missions! * Realistic OMS and RCS placement * Removable external airlock (reconfigure based on your cargo size) * Fuel dump ports to help adjust CoG for landing * CoG allows for stable nose-up re-entry up to about 40 degrees! * MechJeb compatible * Compatible with Inigma's Shuttle Mission Pods! i.e. http://kerbalx.com/inigma/STS%20Fuel%20Pod Flight instructions If you can launch a basic rocket in KSP, you can fly this. There are no tricks or "be careful whens" in this craft, it flies exactly as you'd expect and has good control authority throughout the flight profile to authentically replicate a complete real Space Shuttle flight. The simplest way to fly is with MechJeb, since launching the same way a dozen times to build a space station can get tiring! Without MechJeb, I suggest you use the SAS Radial mode during launch and roll maneuver, roll heads down to your desired heading and pull up until your prograde vector points about 10 degrees along your desired heading, then just switch to SAS Prograde mode the rest of the way. Otherwise, there are NO "be careful it will flip over at X thrust/altitude" or "you have to manage the throttle blah blah blah" instructions with this shuttle. Just fly. You have full control authority in all flight regimes, you can easily stress the wings off if you attempt to fly too sporty but you can experiment with all REAL shuttle maneuvers including RTLS and reentry side slips. Suggested MechJeb settings for authentic launch profile These settings will send you on a launch profile that closely replicates a real shuttle launch. You can see why the shuttle flies upside down on its way to orbit (it helps shield the wings from the airflow), and how it uses a gravity turn to reach orbit. You can also watch the boosters separate and coast to a maximum height before landing back in the ocean for a safe recovery, and how the external tank remains sub-orbital for disposal even after the main engines shut down. Use these numbers as a guideline, you'll have to adapt them depending on your payload and orbit target. For reference, this shuttle has been tested to successfully launch an 18T fuel tank to a 300km 90 degree polar orbit. Orbital Altitude: 100 to 500km Orbital Inclination: 0 to 90 degrees Limit Acceleration to: 40m/s (this is about 3Gs, just to replicate the real shuttle limits) Force Roll: (This replicates the shuttle's roll maneuver after launch) Climb: 180 Turn: 180 (Real shuttle rolled to heads up during the last third of their launch post-1995ish, just change this to 0 when you want to roll to heads up, or leave it at 180 to simulate the earlier launch profile) Corrective Steering: on Autostage: on Pre-Delay: 0 Post-Delay: 0 Stop at stage: 4 Edit Ascent Path: Automatic Altitude Turn: off Turn start altitude: 0.5km Turn start velocity: 100m/s Turn end altitude: 60km Final flight path angle: 8 degrees Turn shape: 66% Action Groups: 1 - Toggle OMS engines 2 - Shut down SSME 3 - Toggle CargoBayDoors/Lights/K-Band Antenna 9 - Toggle OMS fuel dump 10 - Deploy braking chute Here are some "concept" shuttle variations that NASA explored during the Shuttle's golden age. These are all derived from this same shuttle craft file. Shuttle-C version: http://kerbalx.com/crafts/2740 http://kerbalx.com/crafts/2743 Changelog: Enjoy! Comments welcome!

    Shadowsword Titan Hunter

    Craft File: https://kerbalx.com/GillyMonster/WH40k-Shadowsword-Titan-Hunter A sister variant of the more common Baneblade. The Shadowsword forgoes the Baneblade's flexibility in favor of mounting a forward fixed Volcano Cannon. This armament, while typically mounted on Titans, allows the Shadowsword to engage enemy Titans and other super heavy vehicles with extreme effectiveness.
