[1.7.2] KK Launchers - DELTA PACK v. 1.0 (15-06-19) / SpaceX pack v.5.3

Recommended Posts

OK, came up with a rough schedule now. Delta III should be released Sunday (NOT this Sunday, next week Sunday!), and Falcon 9 something like 2 weeks after D3. Then comes Delta IV and Atlas II and III, including a new Centaur for Atlas V. Then more SpaceX stuff (Falcon 9 1.1/1.2, Heavy, Dragon maybe?). This is a long-term schedule, note that please.

For D3 release, I'll still need to redo LR-101s, and a bit of RS-27A work. Sadly, holidays will be over now for me. :(

Cant wait to see what you have for us! Would you consider doing the Minotaur V? It's a very cool solid fuel rocket and would be a unique addon to the game, in my opinion at least:D

I actually am planning to make all the Orbital/ATK rockets. I already have Pegasus basically done :)

I'll add the Minotaur V with the next update. It's nothing special, not really detailed models and textures, simply due to lack of good reference images. I hope you'll like it anyway.

@tristonwilson12: I just saw your reply, but well, it won't hurt to have 2 LV's. :)

There are some good Minotaur V images on the internet! Absolutely can't wait for Delta III! Also, are you considering making the Taurus-3210/Minotaur-C? That's a really cool rocket.

Yeah, but the images I saw showed the vehicle mostly from the outside, and I was especially interested in the inside of the Payload fairing with the Star 48BV and Star 37FM structure, and found no real image. If you have anything, please post it!

I believe you are really waiting for D3, your name says all. :D

Well, I only made Minotaur V because someone suggested it and I felt like doing it. Minotaur C looks nice too, but there are already so many different versions of that rocket...(stretched boosters, widened PLF etc), probably too much for next weeks update. :/ I'll see what I can do though! ;)

I think you could look at Orbiter 2010. The Orbiter Minotaur 5 with LADEE (orbithangar.com) has some models of the upper stages. Also, I think b14643.de has some pictures of Star 48 and 37FM upper stages.

And yes, I am waiting for the Delta III! Absolutely can't wait for its release! :D

For the Minotaur C, I recommend the 3210 version. search?q=ROCSAT+2+launch&biw=1280&bih=563&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAkQ_AUoBGoVChMIwYONyMfKyAIVxMk-Ch1M9AMf#imgrc=5HgW-f4Ntia7qM%3A

Minotaur V and Delta III will cover the majority of the payloads I really need to launch. The 100 ton single piece lunar stations will have to be left to the upcoming Delta IV.

I found this video of LADEE's launch animation on the Minotaur V:

It shows the 4th stage Star 48BV and 5th stage Star 37FM structure along with the turntable.

That is the only thing I found that shows the 4th and 5th stages in action. Hopefully it helps a bit!

Thanks, that's at least something I can use! :)

@DarthVader: Shouldn't that be launched on a BFR or something like that? :D

The Minotaur V is a five stage version of the Minotaur IV. The first three stages were formally used with the Peacekeeper (MX) ballistic missile.

The first Minotaur V mission sucessfully placed the LADEE spacecraft into orbit. The launch took place on 6 September 2013 from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

Awesome! Will the RL10B-2 engine have an extendible nozzle (like the Vinci of starshine industries)?

I'm going to use this so much soon!!

Also I've previously had problems with the fairings not seperating, has anyone else had these problems? I had Old School Fairings installed.

Awesome! Will there be a slight increase in performance of the GEM-46s with the enlarged nozzle (air ignited)?
