# TR-1(Transportnyy Raketa-Odin) Launch System

Blok A mainstage with Blok VS upper stage. Proved completely useless…

Oh well.

Most of the weights and measures were worked out with the help of the instructions at McSheppard Aerospace Corporation for making KSP mods. The Silverbird Astronautics Launch Vehicle Performance Calculator was indispensable for determining vehicle performance. Thanks for the help, guys!

I like to think the Western press would start calling the KT-1 the Odin given half a chance. I prefer to think they’ll get that chance.

And thank you to my audience for excusing this little lapse into oddness,
