The Kaspian Sea Carrier: The Future Of Autonomous and Kerbal Supported Sea & Air Missions

Recommended Posts

The Kaspian Sea Carrier: The Future Of Autonomous and Kerbal Supported Sea & Air Missions:

The Kaspian Sea Carrier comes complete with a carrier landing deck, VTOL UAVs, and an ROV for all your exploration needs. Low part counts of just 265 for the main craft with UAVs and ROV, allow for less lag than one would expect from a craft such as this. The UAV and ROV only have 20-21 parts each, and thus due to their size, are perfect for use in Kerbin and Laythe missions, even in carrier mode! 

 

  • The UAV's can fit in even the tiniest of cargo holds, and are incredibly stable at all speeds. 
  • The ROV features it's own ballast/flotation system of my own invention. You manipulate the landing gear pods to control buoyancy. (KerbalX and the Album below, explain this in more depth)

Looks good!  From your album it doesn't seem like it can fly, but do the wings help improve the speed?

Also the landing gear sub is a cool bug/feature.  I haven't seen that yet.  If it still works with the "wheel blocked", you can rotate them around so the wheels extend inside and don't change the appearance of the sub when they're extended.

Thanks! Yes, it helps minimize the drag by lifting the vehicle more out of the water.

It hadn't occurred to me to test this yet. From my searching, I was the first person to discover this and make a submersible vehicle with it. So it's really just been me testing the idea.

Never seen anything like this before.... very cool!

Thanks, I discovered it a while back but no one has really taken an interest in using the idea in their own submersible vehicles from what I have seen: https://www.reddit.com/r/KerbalSpaceProgram/comments/4h5vqs/100_stock_submarine_technology_discovery_dive_and/
