Space Dock 7 Support Package

I was planning to use an SSTO named Energy Source for delivery of the mobile fuel tanks but I was arriving with too little fuel. I decided to use Rocketry and chose SpaceTech for this Mission. This craft is working and I now have enough fuel to make rendezvous with lots of fuel remaining for the Space Dock's Fuel Transfers. SpaceTech has a Launch Package of a Mobile Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank and also an array of RCS Tanks designed for Mobile Transporting. While En Route for the Mun I noticed the Atomic Rocket Motors were using more fuel than I expected, so I recommend docking Two Mobile Fuel Tanks in LKO if you are planning to place it in the Mun's Orbit.

Man that's awesome! The part count is eye watering though. ;-)

Thank you MJ! and yes it could have been smaller for sure :D. The Space Dock does lag getting on the Launch Pad for me but it's worth the wait and It's been a lot of fun building it. I would like to build a smaller, cleaner looking one with Wing Connectors, I've seen some nice ones on the web but not sure if I will get around to it.
