I would love to find a way to work this challenge into my fan-fiction story somehow... but I'm not sure if can do it by may1st.  Unless I sandbox it.... hmmmmmmmmmm...........

But to be clear... it has to be sticking out of the kraken's body?

Sounds fun! I might try this. How bout we can hyper edit our base onto the Kraken for testing but then have to launch from kerbin to complete the Challenge.

Ok, so this mission didn't fulfill any of the challenge requirements but it still seems like it should be here.  The only cheats used in this video were turning on unbreakable joints for some of the cinematic shots.  The kraken and the missiles are all stock and built using the stock game.

No, but it  cannot touch the ground.

Wait..... what?  How do you mean then, land it on top of the dead kraken?  Or attach it with a KLAW maybe?  Is that possible?

klaws should work. It can touch the ground in the beginning, but the final version shouldn't

Should work???  No offence, but have you actually done this to show it's possible?
That's the first rule of posting a new challenge.

Also, as far as planting a flag in the eyeball, been there, done that, long ago...
