I would probably start with either the easiest mission/easiest one to build (I'm not actually sure what that would be. It's been a while since I have actually gone to space! If you looked at my other forum content you'd understand), or just build the classic historical rocket; the Saturn V.

Interesting, but my computer cringes at the part count of that!!   I'm not even sure how that would work in stock, since the individual rockets are less than half the diameter of the smallest stock fuel tanks &engines

Minotaur rocket. This has the added challenge of how to reach a predefined orbit with an all solid rocket.

How bout SRB-X

That must be the most Kerbal Shuttle derived launch vehicle ever :). When I built mine in KSP I noticed it had enough payload capacity for a Shuttle, so I built a Space Shuttle with nothing but solid rocket motors and did the entire Kerbin series of missions fom the Space Shuttle Challenge with it. See the Space Shuttle challenge thread for details.

I would say any rocket using the RD-270M, a Full-Flow staged combustion cycle engine burning Pentaborane and NTO, it is basically a RD-270 but Pentaborane instead of the glorious UDMH, also it has near F1 levels of thrust

     is the most kerbal rocket

Make a space shuttle but optimize it’s delta V by adding nuclear engines.

Spoiler

Then go actually land somewhere.

I'm not sure what kind of "Payload" you're going to build within the collected data and info from this topic, since,even if the payload is obvious, it "Can" alter the perfomance of the "Proposed Rocket Design", However:

If you're going to:

Send a Space Station Module:

why not Space Shuttle Buran(incluiding the Energia tho), or the classic? or Maybe the Proton-M?

 

Send a Space probe to Jool, Jupiter, or any Primary Gas Giant depending what Planet Pack you're using, to any Planet beyond Jool/Gas Giant's Orbit:

Maybe... Titan IIIE-IV? Atlas V? Delta IV Heavy? Atlas-Centaur?

 

Send a Crewed Mission to any place ,depending how Powerful the rocket is:

Titan II-Gemini, Saturn V, N1, Союз(Soyuz) ,Falcon Heavy, Starship, Space Launch System.

 

Sending a Rover to any Planet(As long as it has surface).

Ariane V, Atlas V, Delta II.

 

Military Purposes?

Днепр(Dnepr), SM-65 Atlas, Titan I-II, V2, R7 Семëрка(Semyorka)

 

Commercial Purposes:

Titan III, Delta II, Soyuz(Rocket,not Spacecraft)

V2, not a rocket but its started the space race

voskhod, crew dragon, cargo dragon, mercury redstone

Rocket:

noun
  1. a cylindrical projectile that can be propelled to a great height or distance by the combustion of its contents, used typically as a firework or signal.

    V-2 is technically a rocket.

Yes is rocket. It’s a metal tube. V-2 = rocket.

Missiles are just rockets with warheads for payloads. So yes. So are most Cold War-era rockets. The A-4/V2 also carried scientific payloads like barometers and insect containers.
