What is Knes mod?

This is a stockalike parts mod that allows you to create French rockets and european Ariane family. & Some Conceptual spacecraft never builded. The mod adds many number of parts, including launchers and spacecraft parts in a stockalike style. Early French Rocket (with CatPod to reproduce the first launch of a Cat in space by Veronique Rocket in 1963), Ariane 5 in 3.75 m Size, Ariane 1, 2, 3 & 4 all variant, European Hermes Space Shuttle, IXV, Viking Capsule and more... This mod is made for Kerbals, not to recreate real rockets with the same performance.

Supported mods by Compatibility patch ( Module Manager Required for patch):

  • Kerbal inventory system(KIS)
  • MechJeb
  • Tweakscale (I need to update the patch for new parts)
  • Pathfinder (Patch by @Space Kadet )
