The "Loki"-Program [KSPX] - Landing on new worlds

Recommended Posts

The Loki - Program

The "Loki"-Program is a Kerban initiative to savely transport Kerbals to distant celestial bodies. The program is based on its own expandable eponymous rocket family.

All rockets feature multi-stage technology and suppress the advent of space-debris under correct usage.

Loki I ver. 1.0.1

Album

This rocket features a "Bifröst"-Capsule for Crew-Transport and a "Mani I"-Münar Lander. The third stage is used for the TMI-Burn. After leaving LKO, transposition, docking, and extraction can be conducted in retrograde position, so the KDS can be disposed on the Mün.

Thanks, they would even work better, if Squad would fix the Structural Pylons, so you could activate them via an action group.

If they do so, new unmanned stuff will come up :)

And I was very surprised, how perfectly flush these structural panels fit together in a pattern of 12.

Update:

I now changed the rocket a bit, so it now splits the fairing in just 2 parts, what saves 0.8 t in total, but the fairing isn't perfectly flush anymore now.

You know that the gravity on Minmus is such low that the Jetpack of the Kerbals is enough for Landing and restarting to orbit ;) But nice lander!
