Friendship Station

Set of all missions related to the Space Station.
Name Craft file Description
Skylab Core Link A Skylab module along with basic connectors, docks, food and fertilizer storage. Able to support 8 kerbals.
Station Transport (3p) Link 3-kerbal transport, capable of reaching the station and reenter the atmosphere safely. Abundant fuel supply.
Hab Section Link Stack of 3-kerbal hab modules, totalling the support for 18 people.
Greenhourse Section Link Section made up of a KIS container, a greenhouse and two containers for fertilizer

Apollo Missons

Set of all missions related to reaching the Moons surface, and returning.
Name Craft file Description
Command Vehicle Link Heavy vehicle, capable of carrying 3 kerbals to the Moon for an extended mission. Includes the reentry capsule.
Reentry Capsule Link Capsule capable of re-entering Earths atmosphere
LEM Link Classic Moon landing vehicle.
Snack Tender Link A 5000 unit of snack supply mission
Az/NTO Tender Link Fuel tender
Goose Link Much heavier version of the Dove, same thrust
Dove Link Light weight probe designed for automated Moon landing.

Interplanetary Exploration

Probes for interplanetary exploration and communication.
Name Craft file Description
Icarus link Light weight probe, carries a basic science package, but is optimized for extreme dV though the use of hydrolox engines.
Surveyor link Specialized probe, dedicated to scanning from polar orbit. Carries low res, high res and biome scanning equipment. First use of hydrolox engines beyond Earth SOI.
Fharlanghn 1 c version
d version
Deep space probes, designed for operations beyond Mars. Carries full science package and RTGs for power. Capable of reaching Saturn.
Kepler 7 Link Upgraded Kepler with all the latest science experiments.
Mars Lander Link Experimental Mars lander. Designed for unpowered reentry, relying on parachutes and balloons. Includes a small stage for final Mars orbit maneuvers, intended to be left in orbit, as a relay satellite.
Kepler Science Missions 4-5 Kepler 4

Kepler 5

A continuation of the Kepler series but with enhanced with communication equipment, and sufficient solar panels to support the additional energy requirement. In addition, they have larger tanks and more powerful RCS clusters. The 5 version carries a very large communication dish, which enables interplanetary communication with planets other then Earth.

LEO Probe Missions

Name Craft file Description
Geo Sat Link Hydrolox equiped communication probe. Carries 24 Com 32 units. Capable of reaching the Moon.
SAR Scanner Link A simple probe with a SAR scanner and abundant power supply.
Kepler Science Missions 1-3 Kepler 1

Kepler 2

Kepler 3

Probes dedicated to carrying all lossless science instruments. Higher versions carry more experiments, which where developed later.
Reentry Test Link Basically just a core, heatshield, avionics on a heatshield, on the smallest possible rocket chassis. Simple and functional.
MEO Omni communication for OCP network Link Launcher with 3 MEO Omni satellites, all carrying Com32 radio transmitters. Intended for 8.000km altitude, which will cover all of Earth orbit up to at least 12.000 km of altitude.
GeoComSat for ICBM network Link Small communication satellite with direct transmissions. Capable of reaching geostationary orbit.

Early suborbital and orbital missions

Early space missions, capable of reaching space at 150km, as well as early orbital missions
Name Craft file Description
Capsule Four Link
Capsule Three Link
Capsule Two Link
Capsule One Link
Stardreamer III Link An upgraded version of the basic Stardreamer, with a more powerful engine. 5+ crewed launches on record
Stardreamer Link The first crewed spaceflight design. Basically a Elegance V with the probe core replaced by parachutes and an X-1 cockpit Capable of reaching 380km straight up, and returning a single Kerbal safely to the surface. Highly stable.

Early Moon Missions

Rocket used in the first missions the Moon, leading up to the landing of the first basic probe.
Name Craft file Description
Moon Com Network Link Simple Moon capable probe, designed for communications.
Moon Lander 5 Link First ever Moon Lander. Exploits the technology available at the time to perform a powered landing.
Silver Dart Heavy Never actually used Concept design, aimed at exploiting current engine design to the fullest. Rated for above 15.000 dV. First ever design to achieve it. Used cluster of 4 engines on the main stage and 4 additional boosters. Last design to actually use boosters.
Silver Dart E Link Completely new design for a Moon capable rocket. Stronger, faster, and much lighter than the orbiter series. Improved RCS, Avionics, Science and Power supply. Minor dV improvements.
Orbiter IIId Link Rocket capable of just reaching Moon SOI. Triple stage with 4 boosters. Designed for orbital engine restarts using RCS. Warning: very low RCS fuel storage. 32k electricy (about 3 days), but no solar power.

Sounding Rocket series

Early rockets tasked with reaching orbit
Name Craft file Description
Orbiter Ic Link Orbit capable triple stage rocket with restartable final stage stage. Limited electricity (about 5hours). A slightly upgraded version of the first orbiter. Minor RCS capability. Max altitude: 7000km
Bermuda Beacher Link 2-stage rocket with second stage and dual boosters. Capable of reaching as far as Bermuda
Soaring Spindle (series) Link

+ boosters

2-stage rocket with unguided second stage. Rotates for stability. Upper stage will tip over upon released.
Elegance (series) Elegance I

Elegance V

A series of aerodynamic, selfstabilizing rockets, with fairings to protect the probe core, science payloard and parachutes. The first of the series, with a main tank length of 5 meters is capable of reaching 140km. Later version extended this to 10 meters, and carried 8 tiny tim boosters for initial jumpstart. Elegance V is capable of reaching 380km
Fatbird link Theoretical concept. Simulations where so unfavorable, that the design was dropped.
Spacereacher link An attempt at combining two “Bigger and Higher” rockets at once in a stagged setting. Seriously lacks fairings! Requires hotstaging for successful launch of second stage. Max height reached 118km.
Bigger and Higher link More aerodynamic rocket, with triple fuel tanks, and science payload and parachutes attached radially. Max height reached 72km.
Science (series) link Very early, and very basic rocket. Capable of reaching 18km.
