Heinkels 1.2 heavy lifters! (Biggest lifter on KerbalX)

Recommended Posts

This is Heinkels thread for 1.2 lifters!

I will be posting all of my he- series lifting vehicles for the 1.2 update in this thread, so if anyone needs a good, heavy, and powerful lifting vehicle, they can stop right by!

 

Heavy Lifters:

Name | Stages | Lifting capacity

He966    |    One    |     100 tons

He967    |    One    |     200 tons

He968    |   Two     |     500 tons

He969    |   Three   |    1000 tons

He1200    |   Two   |    1200 tons

He1500    |   Two   |    1500 tons

The 1000 ton lifter has a 1000 ton fuel payload, and it cannot be changed, it is a very specialized design.

The 1200 ton lifter was more or less a "prototype" of the 1500 ton lifter, and was not intended for actual deployment.
The 1500 ton lifter offers the best tons to orbit / parts ratio, but not the best efficiency, that goes to the 969.

So far this is my complete collection of usable lifters, I do not like my "lower end" lifters, i.e. anything that takes less than the He969 to orbit, but I do plan on doing remake on all of these, as well as a 2000 ton lifter eventually.

Subbed thanks, I suck at making heavy lifters so this will be a great addition to the fav's

I have completed and tested all of the lifters, they should be complete, let me know if any of them have quirks or issues that need to be ironed out still.

What dV are you using for orbit?

I am using at least 4,100 m/s of dV for an orbit. Some of my lifters confuse Kerbal engineer, but they should always be able to make orbit fairly reliably as long as they are using the specified maximum payload.

I have completed and tested all of these rockets, hopefully they work as intended! Let me know if you guys have any trouble, or idea's to contribute, but keep in mind:

 

Most of these are for aesthetics, and are not intended for anything more than fun. The rockets were not designed with efficiency, or low part count in mind.
