He700 series lifters (unfinished, accidental post)

Recommended Posts

Ignore this post, wasn't finished when clicked post by accident.

If a mod sees this, feel free to delete, or leave up awaiting lifters to be posted to kerbalX and imgur.

 

KSP players are now capable, and in the recent past as well, of building lifters that can efficiently take over 1000 tons of cargo to orbit, although the initial pruchase prices of those rockets is massive, it would cost just as much to launch them in smaller packages.

 

There are more efficient ways of putting masses this large into orbit, like slowly bit by bit via a reusable lifter instead of a disposable one, but it has a flaw.

It just isn't as Kerbal.

 

I present to you, the He700 series of lifters, from 100 tons, to 2000 tons, and plans for more in the future.

LKO Lifters:

 

Lifter | Cargo to orbit (70km) | stages

He700: 100 tons (1 stage)

He710: 200 tons (1 stage)

https://kerbalx.com/He_162/He710

He720: 300 tons (3 stage)

https://kerbalx.com/He_162/He720

He730: 400 tons (2 stage)

https://kerbalx.com/He_162/He730

He740: 500 tons (2 stage)

https://kerbalx.com/He_162/He740

He750: 1000 tons (TBD)

Under long term development to increase efficiency, part count, and total performance.

He760: 2000 tons (TBD)

Under long term development to increase efficiency, part count, and total performance.

---------

He770: 3000 tons (TBD)

(may complete, may not, it's rather hard to make.)

 

Munar Orbit Lifters:

That's right, these next lifters will take their respective cargo loads to the orbit of the mun for large scale colonization tasks. I am not going to promise that I will do a Duna mission of such scale, but if I do, be sure to catch it when it comes!

---------

(There is no guarantee I will finish these, I am limited by the single core processing power I have, as it is very laggy trying to build lifters of this caliber.)

Lifter | Cargo to orbit (25km Munar) | stages

He780: 350 tons (TBD)

Under long term development to increase efficiency, part count, and total performance.

He790: 750 tons (TBD)

Under long term development to increase efficiency, part count, and total performance.

He800: 1500 tons (TBD)

Under long term development to increase efficiency, part count, and total performance.
