Mir was a space station that operated in low Earth orbit from 1986 to 2001, operated by the Soviet Union and later by Russia. Mir was the first modular space station and was assembled in orbit from 1986 to 1996.

It had a greater mass than any previous spacecraft. At the time it was the largest artificial satellite in orbit, succeeded by the International Space Station (ISS) after Mir's orbit decayed. The station served as a microgravity research laboratory in which crews conducted experiments in biology, human biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology, and spacecraft systems with a goal of developing technologies required for permanent occupation of space.
The orbital assembly of Mir began on 19 February 1986 with the launch of the Proton-K rocket. Four of the six modules which were later added (Kvant-2 in 1989, Kristall in 1990, Spektr in 1995 and Priroda in 1996) followed the same sequence to be added to the main Mir complex.

Firstly, the module would be launched independently on its own Proton-K and chase the station automatically. It would then dock to the forward docking port on the core module's docking node, then extend its Lyappa arm to mate with a fixture on the node's exterior. The arm would then lift the module away from the forward docking port and rotate it on to the radial port where it was to mate, before lowering it to dock. The node was equipped with only two Konus drogues, which were required for dockings. This meant that, prior to the arrival of each new module, the node would have to be depressurised to allow spacewalking cosmonauts to manually relocate the drogue to the next port to be occupied.

The other two expansion modules, Kvant-1 in 1987 and the docking module in 1995, followed different procedures. Kvant-1, having, unlike the four modules mentioned above, no engines of its own, was launched attached to a tug based on the TKS spacecraft which delivered the module to the aft end of the core module instead of the docking node. Once hard docking had been achieved, the tug undocked and deorbited itself. The docking module, meanwhile, was launched aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis during STS-74 and mated to the orbiter's Orbiter Docking System. Atlantis then docked, via the module, to Kristall, then left the module behind when it undocked later in the mission.

Various other external components, including three truss structures, several experiments and other unpressurised elements were also mounted to the exterior of the station by cosmonauts conducting a total of eighty spacewalks over the course of the station's history.

Modules and spacecrafts

Core module(Salyut-8)(this craft)


Kvant-1


Kvant-2


Kvant-3(Kristall)
It have two APAS, so you can dock only crafts with APAS/IDA to it. Move its solar panels to Kvant-1 after docking


Spektr
It have telescope. Use Slider 4 for it


Priroda
move it's solar panel to core module


Docking module with Space shuttle Atlantis


Buran with APAS


Soyuz with APAS

Enjoy!

    @KirRu means to retract the rope (connected to solar panel) and move the astronaut to dock?

    @KAIST in reality, the solar panel on "Priroda" was abandoned and replaced with batteries. The panel for the core module was delivered on Kvant-1. As you can see, I used the old version

    It seems that Priroda's Solar Panel has been moved to Kristall
    And, I know that the 3rd Solar Panel of the Mir Core Module was launched separately by Proton-M Rocket

    @simpleaerospace maybe. I was drafted into the army, so it's not a fact that I will.

    @KAIST use astronaut's rope to move it. They connected to modules by small docking ports
