Perun - an air-launched rocket capable of carrying small payloads of up to 1050 kilograms into Low Earth Orbit . The vehicle consists of kerolox powered first stage and upper stage powered by hypergolic engine. First stage has wings and a tail to provide lift and attitude control while in the atmosphere.

Perun

Hey, that rings a bell :) Your Stargazer is top-notch, by the way!

As long as we're posting air-launched stuff, here's my carrier plane after its first successful landing:

Taking off with the rocket...

...and the rocket in flight. It's a three stage solid vehicle coming in at about 1500 kg, give or take, but very temperamental. I had to do like four tries to get it into orbit, half of the time it would just flip over after release. Stage 1 gets it above the Karman line and the fins provide control, then the fairing is ejected and nitrogen thrusters underneath align the whole thing, a set of small solid rockets spins it up and stage 2, then 3 are ignited. The payload needs to include a probe core for staging, but I got around 20 kg to low orbit and 10 kg to a very elliptical one. Not useful at all, but a nice exercise in minimalism.

@Ravenchant what engines did you use for each sage?

Man those are SEXY! I really wanted to make a Energia, maybe i will do it later. Nice work! I did not expect the LK700 rocket (forgot its name) could carry SO MUCH payload to LEO!

Can you please upload a better quality image?

I have made about five smaller pictures which show those rockets in detail but when I saved each one as well as the overall picture, the quality decreased massively. I will hopefully post a higher quality version after it's finished, which might be a while due to a bunch of other stuff happening right now.

My version is not 100% accurate. I've used RD270-M engines which run on pentaborane and RD-0120 as a third stage.

 

 

 

Few interplanetary missions which I did in career mod. Sorry for lack of descriptions:

Unlocked the RD-180 engine today, so I made an Atlas V 401 for my RP0 save.

Cassini probe serves as test payload :)

It is crazy that the Atlas V is so cheap. Without payload, the rocket costs only :funds:13,000 and the build time is less than 2 weeks.

Compared to a Titan 3D (look at page 12) which can get a similar payload to LEO (max 12 tons) is it only a quarter of the price.

However due to the single RL10 on the upper stage i only get a TWR of around 0.24. That means it takes 15 minutes to get into orbit! :mad:

One day, when I am in my 40s, I will finally get a damn computer that can run these kinds of graphics. And then I will play KSP. And everyone in my family will think I am an immature prick, including my future wife. But whatever, KSP is life, I guess.

Im really exited to run RO again today. I haven't played it in a week! Today i want to start a new RP0 campaign, this time without Testflight. TestFlight ruined my previous campaign. Im planning to build this in Sandbox though:

Quick question, Am I the only one who thinks replicas are boring and prefers to design their own LVs?

Totally not, I do like to design my crafts on my own as well. When doing a replica, there's not that much room for your own aproach of  the mission. Also, the real missions had to deal with a lot more factors, that made the design how it is. 
Of course RO asks a bit more realism in it's design, but room enough for your own design. 

(although I've done some replica missions, but feels so scripted :) )

Well, the replicas work. I made a new Earth Orbit Rendevous Moon mission ,  but all the parts were lofted into orbit by Saturn V's and Saturn C-8s, So I don't count that as my first my own hardware moon landing. I installed the Space X pack, only to find the Raptors have no RO support.

You aren't alone pal, i try making replicas every now and then, but it gets boring after a while. I always get fascinated by the whole make your very own factor of things, i get hungry when i see the word create somewhere. (Also, the Space Race ended up in failure for me, im br0ke in that save)

My KSP just crashed, so i might just share it now.

Today i made my first launch vehicle in a long while, i introduce you to my new son Gert I!

It can probably send around 2 tons to LEO, i cant confirm, this thing does however have quite a bit of Delta-V left when in a stable orbit, like 1,8km/s. I don't know the payload capacity since the upperstage actually was the satellite itself, because i did not see the point of making a seperate entity. Another variant (Gert IB) is slightly longer and has an advanced upperstage, with satellite dishes, and solar panels, used for my first polar orbit. If Gert can send 2 tons to LEO it will likely bring my manned satellite Samson to orbit.

^^ Gert's Upper stage. The inwards AJ10 caused problems with gimballing and was unable to gimbal for a short time period, but made it into orbit eventually. The Design flaw is fixed in Gert 1B

Nice! Are we still on for the whole space race thing?

Just need to say I love this thread. Love seeing how others approach the unique challenges presented by Rss/RO. Keep it rolling:)

Is that you CosmoCrash? I love your videos!

I don't know, testflight is sort of annoying, ill think about it.
