Recommended Posts

What is Knes mod?

This is a stockalike parts mod that allows you to create French rockets and Conceptual spacecraft never builded.
The mod adds many number of parts, including launchers and spacecraft parts in a stockalike style.
Early French Rocket (with CatPod to reproduce the first launch of a Cat in space by Veronique Rocket in 1963),
Ariane 5 in 3.75 m Size, European Hermes Space Shuttle, IXV, Viking Capsule and more... 
This mod is made for Kerbals, not to recreate real rockets with the same performance.

Supported mods by Compatibility patch ( Module Manager Required for patch):

- Kerbal inventory system(KIS)
- MechJeb
Tweakscale (I need to update the patch for new parts)
Pathfinder (Patch by @Space Kadet )

Optional Dependencies ( For Hermes IVA )

- Near Future Props

I did notice it's lightly smaller but that just means it's easier to put in a fairing

Yes exactly, and you don't need anymore elevon for control, just SAS.

But the launch is always a problem, i have made a module "Safe System" with big reaction wheels to control the lift (also escape system) Work fine with Mechjeb autopilot, see the Craft Files

Oh this looks beautiful

May I suggest that you edit the link on spacedock, it's broken,and any time I click it, it simply reloads the spacedock page. It's important cause I can't find this forum through a google search

The CEV looks more like the ESA Hermes spaceplane than the NASA design to me. Very nice job.

The way you docked it reminds me of the DreamChaser, which is currently for cargo.

So many Concept of space shuttle, have plannified a dock in the back.

HL-20 / HL-42 / Hermes / Dreamchaser / Biconic.... and so many other

My best version is the Hermes with MTFF station :
