[1.10.X] Tantares - Stockalike Soyuz and MIR [1.0][04.08.2020][Venera 1VA]

Recommended Posts

Perfect!

Link on the front page appended, many thanks :)

Awesome! I have become Tantares approved. :cool:

Here is my semi-accurate Proton launcher with my semi-accurate full Salyut 6 sub-assembly on top. I attached the Tantares V-N6 hub so it's ready for expansion! Just add Progress, Soyuz, or etc. and your Mir or ISS station awaits. Instructions on how to fly:

  1. The full Salyut is heavy, so the Proton will probably only get you to a low (100-200m) orbit. Fly the ALV-A booster first stage to 25m then start gradually rotating east to achieve an equatorial orbit. You should hit the 90 degree mark at your apoapsis.
  2. Burn what's left of the first stage, decouple it, and fire up the B second stage. You may be able to reach orbit with this second stage alone. However, you will most likely need the C third stage.
  3. Equalise your orbit. Decouple the C third stage.
  4. Use the Capella to fine tune. Decouple the Capella if/when you need to use the docking port that is at the bottom of the Salyut station. There are two small monopropellant boosters at the bottom for future corrections.
  5. Send up a Soyuz and stick it on the top or bottom!

PS: I can replicate the Salyut's double tiered fairing with Procedural fairings, but it adds 4 extra/unnecessary parts. Is it worth it just for the look?

I have been experimenting with Russian style maintainance towers for my R-7 style rockets using Infernal Robotics

Not a very streamlined design, but it looks close enough:D

Retracting the maintainance gantries

I think these are for holding the rocket down while the engines build up, but I retracted them anyway:P

Liftoff! This mission was just a test of the missile and carried what is supposed to represent a dummy nuclear warhead. For some reason, the core engine on the R-7 shut down with about a third of the fuel left. I was able to restart it by switching to booster mode, but I couldn't get it to reignite in core mode.

That is awesome! The launchpad looks totally gorgeous. :)

Is it too far out of your plans for Tantares to maybe look into making those maintenance gantry's as a launch tower??? For some reason I really kind of like those towers ever since I saw them as props in Command & Conquer Generals......

My tulip only took me a few seconds, and was really just a proof of concept for me. I considered making it stock, then remembered that I had Infernal Robotics installed and thought, "Why have a mod if you never use it for anything?"

Just curious, but how is your Soyuz an improvement over my Soyuz?

I would not claim that mine was an improvement; I think that your Soyuz is the definitive edition. You set the standard for excellence. :)

Rjtaml requested a craft file that did not have struts from the KW Rocketry add on. He could not open your craft file because he did not have that add on. That's why I posted my Soyuz. I also posted my Proton+Salyut because I've been launching stations using the Proton and Salyut parts since Beale posted the beta files for the new Proton a couple of days ago.

Shoot, those little struts. I haven't gotten around to that. Will do now.

Um, you're actually off base on this one, considering both Darth and Beale have a common interest in designing Russian spacecraft.

Oh I saw you wanted to make a MAKS. need a 3d model for art?

Thanks for this update Beale! :D

I made .cfgs for these to work with RealFuels if anyone's interested:

You also need this for the engines to work:

*Checks Back in After a Break from KSP* What is this about "core mode" and "Booster Mode"?

New TLV has lower stage engine available in two modes: lower thrust higher ISP (core) and vice verca booster mode.

Beale, the N-IM actually does fly! ^^

(Sure, it needs a couple 12kN linear RCS thrusters to keep it in-line, but I think that's perfectly fine for a 5200 ton rocket. Especially one made in such an unconventional way...)

I see, you can not into imgur albums.

At first you need the last letters (Or numbers) in your album link. For example: http://imgur.com/a/SWjbj#0 -> SWjbj

And then put this between two tags: [ imgur]SWjbj[ /imgur]

First post, page 316 ;)

I can the into album, but too much wörk, not enough gainings. (Hopefully that actually was a polandball engrish reference)

Also, I didn't want to clog the thread up with too much of my poop.

Hey-hey, first satellite from RSSA is flying. :)

Thanks to Beale for that hoop antennas and a Hamal probe core. :)

Is that satellite inspired by the Sputnik 3/Object D probe?

Yep, it's the closest thing to Object D I could assemble. You can check out the whole story in the dedicated thread. :)

I have read the story, and I can't wait to read the rest of it! It makes me want to try to recreate my own Object D.

Thanks! Glad you liked it. For me it's a bit unusual to write in English. :)

And for the object D, I think, the most difficult are those curved antennas on the sides. :)
