Does someone have the craft files for the H2A, H2B and the H3?

@hraban Are you planning to make the CZ-2F?

search by TAGS for H2 and H3 and you find all parts. Khi-2 (CZ-2F) can be build by contares parts. There a no craft files today but it's posible to make it next days. Take a look inside this document to find all parts you need to build the launchers: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xtxvdcjyqxp069b/Contares_Carrier_Rockets.pdf?dl=0.

Two or three reports on the subject of POLYUS are not enough to carry on the controversial project. The alternative possibilities of use are too limited and a weapon-technical use is not a question for Contares.

Proposals for the alternative use of POLJUS in the sense of peaceful use are welcome.

I'm sorry if I missed this... You know - Polyus - mouth-open & all that jazz!

 

Machst 'nen prima Job, wäre wirklich 'ne Schande wenn so ein schönes 3D-Modell nicht seinen Weg in dieses Spiel finden würde :(

Thank you!

Vielleicht packe ich das Modell in den nächsten update.

As an extension of the RIVER carrier rocket (ANGARA) the KVTK, a cryogenic upper stage can be used. The upper stage has an integrated flight control unit, on the upper port a flange for the attachment of a docking port. It is possible to equip KVTK with one or two RK-Z-0146 engines depending on the weight of the payload.

Possible use as a tug for a mun mission.

Rework of KVTK. SAS and tank is now separated, so you can use procedural fairing for the upper part.

I like your mesh interstages, is that how they are IRL? Covered in insulation?

KVTK is only in the planning phase. How the upper stage will ultimately look is not clear. Contares has been largely oriented on the drawings and designs that can be found in the www, and has devoted a considerable portion of artistic freedom in order to lend the upper stage a little charm.

If it is in contrast to the Earth on Kerbin works so, an SSL+TO should be even more simple on Duna, so the idea at Contares. The result is an ultralight system optimized for the conditions of Duna with return capacity. The KOMPAKTLANDER will be able to bring 3 kerbals as well as 500 kg payload onto the surface. A return is provided with three kerbals and a maximum payload capacity of 50 kg.

Btw.: Two new SolarPanels. Inspired by the solar panels of THIANZHOU and TIANGONG.

question with the lander

is the 500kg payload one-way with no return or is it 500 down then 50 up?

KOMPAKTLANDER brings down 500kg payload and 3 Kerbals to DUNA from an 90km orbit without parachutes and droguechutes, return to an 90km orbit with 3 Kerbals and 50kg payload.

Hello BDB :)

Contares-and-BDB,medium_large.1493406178.png

It is time that BDB gets a hangar that keeps the rain.
Thanks to all the nuclear power plants and the coalworks,
the rain is so sour that it even erodes stainless steel.

Kerbals is not suitable for EVA work with heavy equipment. Also, KAS / KIS has its legitimate limits of mass and the volume of parts. The best way to transport heavy parts to the correct position would be a TUG just failing it often at the different coupling modules. In this case, the design engineers of Contares developed the universal docking port. This is compatible with all Contares APAS and CIDAS docking ports. In addition, the port will be equipped with an electromagnetic mount (KAS / KIS). On customer request the compatibility can also be extended to SQUAD standard docking ports and other systems.

The engine and upper stage part for H2 and H3 are now separated:

Hey hraban,

Very good mod and great work! :wink:

I found a big problem with how CKAN installs this mod:

It downloads the right zip-file, but it then copies only a few files into the GameData folder, so that many parts and patches aren't shown in KSP.

 

I tested it on 3 other computers, all have the same issue.

I reported it here:

Contares is not optimized for installation via CKAN. Manual installation is preferred.
