This is an almost perfect 1:1 scale replica Of the Atlas V, the same rocket that launched Curiosity, and that will soon launch Perseverance. I hand built this to actual dimensions, an example is the main booster code with a diameter of 3.8 m.
Anyways, this has the capability of launching large satellites like the Space Force’s AEHF satellite. I might build Perseverance as a follow up soon.
The staging is extended to add aesthetics is, as in the ‘pipes’ or whatever they are that connect to the side, and fall down when launching. This is for aesthetics only, but don’t go into slow mode, because it glitches out and can destroy everything. Also don’t start your gravity turn too early.
This build has not been tested for RSS, so only stock planets and ESS.
One more thing, this is the base design without a payload, and it already isn’t very mobile friendly. So with a payload, it may be less mobile friendly.
So thanks for reading and hopefully you like this craft. I’ve spent plenty of time on it so I appreciate any feedback.
