Project DebDeb - The Jupiter IV

Recommended Posts

Fun little mothership that can be exploited for all your oversized (and laggy) problems. Useful for problems involving a big laggy ship. Would not recommend for the following:

- Small space station refueling missions

- Landing the whole thing on other planets

- Aerobraking

- Anything you want to get more than 10 FPS on (less than 1 if you have a PC like mine)




Mass: 2685.31 (not the launch vehicle. just the ship)

Parts: 1430 (though with the launch vehicle it is well over 1500)

Height: 175.12 m

Width: 63.87 m

Length: 38.85

Dry Mass: 757.12 T

TWR: Over one with launch vehicle

Static fire test of final design (things started exploding so dV is a lot lower than normal)


wont even fit in a single shot in the VAB lol

HI !!!! I am an enthusiastic KSP player. This monstrous yet ingenious mothership design is an absolute marvel! While laggy and impractical for precision maneuvers, it's a delightfully excessive engineering feat perfect for oversized exploits. I wouldn't recommend it for refueling stations, planetary landings, aerobraking or high-FPS scenarios, but for pure audacious scale and creative problem-solving, it's an absolute blast!

Impractical is an understatement lol ;)
