[Game] Fortify Minmus, then dare someone else to conquer it!

Recommended Posts

Here is something I challenge my fellow KSP aficionados to do.

Mods required: BD Armory.

Mods recommended: Burn Together, Kerbal Attachment System, Kerbal Inventory Systems.

Minmus is one of those worlds where you can orbit at a low enough altitude for the surface itself to fully load in, along with anything on the surface. Meaning that you can put weapons on the surface, and shoot down vessels in low orbit.


So here's the challenge:

Stage 0 - Prepare:

Build a series of fortresses on Minmus, heavily armored structures with massive guns. These are your primary surface structures.

Then deploy dozens, maybe even hundreds of smaller gun turrets around the surface. These could be anything from mini-forts with flak cannons, to tiny probe cores with a .50 cal turret that can be deployed from a rover en masse.

Once you've completed the construction of your surface defenses, put a few defensive stations in orbit (I would recommend lasers for this, as guns could de-orbit the structure with their recoil.

Leave a few tanks and gunships near the forts, you'll need them later.

Finally, build a few colonies on the surface. At the center of each colony is your flag. Remember to put defenses around the colony.

Once your defenses are complete, send the save file to a friend.

Stage 1 - Attack:

Your friend must then assemble their assault force, be it a single ship, or a massive fleet. Also, bring some landable turrets and drop pods.

Then bring the fleet to Minmus, and engage the defenses.

If possible, destroy the turrets protecting a colony, then replace the flag with one of your own, capturing it. You may repeat this step however many times you want until your forces are destroyed. Leave a turret or two at each captured colony to defend it.

Once your friend has done as much damage as they can with the forces they brought, the save file is returned to you.

Stage 2 - Repair and prepare for next attack:

Perform repairs using the resources available on the surface. Use your tanks and gunships to liberate the colonies that have been captured.

Adjust the defenses however you wish. But you can't use anything you don't already have on the surface.

Then Repeat from Stage 1.

As you can see this game would be rather time-consuming, but incredibly fun. Especially if you and your partner record footage of your turns and share them, so you can see how it went.


The defender must survive for as many turns as possible. The attacker must conquer Minmus in as few turns as possible. If the attacker fails to conquer the whole moon after ten tries, the defender wins.

The attacker may use Burn Together to assemble fleets. The defender may use Kerbal Attachment System and Kerbal Inventory System to repair damage and adjust fortifications.
