part of MIR station

Development of a new kind of Soviet space station module, designated 37K, was authorized on 17 September 1979. The 37KS modules for Mir were cancelled in 1983 in favor of KB Salyut designs derived from the Chelomei TKS spacecraft.

Development of a new kind of Soviet space station module, designated 37K, was authorized on 17 September 1979. The basic 37K design consisted of a 4.2 m diameter pressurized cylinder with a docking port at the forward end. It was not equipped with its own propulsion system. The original authorization was for a total of eight 37K's of two configurations: 37KS for use as space station modules for Mir, and 37KB for use with the Buran space shuttle. Design and fabrication reached an advanced phase when it was decided that the separate tug concept resulted in too low a net scientific payload (3 metric tons). Integrating the tug with the module was expected to increase this to 5 metric tons and provide some reserve engine capability at Mir and additional pressurized volume. Accordingly the 37KS modules for Mir were cancelled in 1983. Competitive designs for integrated space station modules were submitted by KB Salyut and NPO Energia. The KB Salyut 77K modules were derived from the cancelled TKS manned ferry. The competing proposal from NPO Energia combined the 37KS module with the engine unit of Mir. In June 1984 the KB Salyut design was selected.

    @RamenNoodlesXVII I used his engines on my UR-700M, which I will upload in few weeks

    @KirRu perhaps use some XML engines from Mario G since those seem pretty good and make the engines subassemblies

    nice crafts but perhaps you could in your builds add more realistic engines to the rockets to use in RSS :))

    @simpleaerospace MIR was assembling right before the collapse of the USSR, so there was not much money. Therefore, Buran was also canceled.

    Nice craft! Why it was canceled? I didn't know this was planned module for MIR!
