Energia - Buran 1.02 Space Shuttle [KSP 1.1.3]

Recommended Posts

updated version of my Energia - Buran Space Shuttle

since months almost ready :wink:

with old versions of KSP i had some propulsion problems. is now fixed with excess of power and part clipping :D 

how to fly:

~45% thrust for the first stage may be enough

separation w.o. throttle otherwise easy to fly with impressive glider capabilities...

!! open cargo once for front gear deployment bugfixing !!

"beta than ever" buran 1.07 craft :cool:

more cargohold (inspired by vitekc45c`s buran) 501 parts - somehow laggy on my pc :D

howto launch (version 1.06 with ~20t cargo): full throttle till booster strap-off afterwards slightly throttle down till ~40%@35km followed by full throttle orbital-burn with buran main engine`s.

~60% shuttle fuel left for a de-orbit burn and landing (RCS help`s a lot for a soft touchdown)

That looks really nice! The Energia part of the rocket looks very realistic and the Buran looks good as well. :)

@ Jep Cubed ~20t low orbit with help mech jep and some extra rcs on top were no issue ;) BUT no realistic flight behavior :D tends to flip over ...

i use some fuel line cheating on the other hand LV-45T instead LV-30T properly woud help for nice flight behavior (at least booster flight) but lowers max. take off mass.

That thing looks the part!

Is it me, or I see an Hermes atop an Ariane on your album?

It does look very much like the real thing! (and must have taken you a load of time). Have some rep :)

way too much time...

there's ONLY one more thing... scale-up of the cargohold (and fix all other thing`s e.g. wing geometriy -somehow :D)

The first post is slightly confusing - which download .craft is working for KSP1.02 ?

I was actually just trying to make my own Buran rep. The reason the Energia lacks power is because, well, it kind of did in real life... sometimes the Russian way of using very many very small rockets does not work that well. Well done sir.

@ tjsnh 1.02 version were on hold. theres a (reproducible) bug -> only 2 of 4 booster engine firing up -> i wait for ksp 1.03 (or later) relaise fix. http://ralphmirebs.livejournal.com/219949.html nice albumb you found there.

@ kagame, maybe the energia was lacking power. but, far as I know, the RD-170 kerosin-lox engines were extrem powerful and have a very good fuel efficiency -> chamber pressure ~245 bar :) -> power output turbo pump ~ 192MW or 257000 shaft horsepower for each booster were needed :cool: -> only problem i have, there's no stock ksb RD-170 equivalent :P
