Recommended Posts

Description

The Sister Unit of MS-03 Xanthus the MS-03 Balius. Built for Space combat after needing a new unit that can have High Mobility but needs to also have the armor and weapon systems of her sister unit. Just like MS-02 Zephyr Prototype the Skeleton frame is based on the same technology which incorporates the same technology and borrowed parts from both units. This produces a groundbreaking upgrade to performance and capability for mass production. Scaled-down version with enhanced mobility and onboard and external weapons to connected to multiple docking ports on arms and shoulders.

MS-03 Balius is geared to handle within the Kerbol system to combat Space Pirates and destabilized nation-states. Also can perform in Multi-rolled tasks and can be used for Construction, First Responder, Military application and the list goes on.

Able to recover from falls and with a smaller frame means it will be more stable than previous models.

Interchangeable parts will allow you to customize and use the mainframe as a stepping stone if you choose. (recommended different head styles to compliment or different hands (default grab units)

Action groups have been designated to dedicated KAL9000 Robotics. All parts are fully stock with only using DLC for required usage. No need to download flags if you choose not to but HIGHLY recommended if you want the full look for the mobile suit.

KEY FACTS

ALL STOCK NO MODS (BOTH DLC NEEDED)

Action Groups and Pilot Instructions

Toggle SAS and set navigation to Radial Out to walk

Toggle RCS and Toggle AG 7 (ski) use trim keys I and H to enter ski mode to slide hover on planets with high gravity planets like Kerbin

Space bar (Fire head Particle Cannon make sure to raise face cover using I, K keys)

AG1 to Stand

AG2 to Walk (Note: Default stable run speed is 1.6 speed at around 4.0 -5.5 m/s can increase to 1.4 and get 6 - 7 m/s but will fall more often)

AG3 Sit and Stand animation (Note: can sit on objects and use this to start tilting forward. Once in position, you can hit AG1 to stand up if you fall over. This is also needed to dock and undock Kerbals in the cockpit.

AG4 Kneel ( used to conserve energy. Once in a kneeling position, you can turn off SAS as well as use this for stable shots from Particle Cannon. Use this to also let Kerbals board and onboard

AG5 Open Canopy

AG6 Shielded Gun Mode

AG7 Toggle Ski Mode

AG9 Rotate Shoulder Mounts

AG 0 Toggle RCS Thrusters for High Mobility

Further Notes: When launching I recommend using unbreakable parts/crash damage. Has enough energy without needing to use unlimited energy.

The Root part to move the unit is the back radial docking port. Attach to docking. Use this to easily dock with other craft to transport this unit to other sites by flying transport aircraft or to take off the planet. It will not fit in a standard MK3 Cargo unit and will need to have a custom cargo bay.

Other than that have fun!

A stock aircraft called MS-04 Balius. Built with 278 of the finest parts, its root part is strutCube.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.12.3.

I know what every part I see is.  It's just arranging them into something like this that gets me.  That is excellent work.  Do you also build models and/or kitbash?  You have such an eye.

Thanks! I used to build back in early 2000's with gundam wing and gundam wing endless waltz and a little gundam 00 kits back in the day but i never kit bashed them.  KSP has replaced model building for me.

I used to build model kits.  Gave it up when I left home, not enough free time, and eventually my bitz box I gave away in a move to a friend.  I consider it now and then, but likewise, KSP has become much more of an outlet.  Doesn't cost as much, no mask to deal with fumes, and no paint on the fingers.  :D

That's for sure! I wish I did have the space and room to do that again in but yeah KSP will do just as fine!
