The Lunar Module Ascent vehicle is a part of the Lunar Module used in Mission 11 and Mission 16.

It is designed for use when ascending from a non atmospheric planet/moon. It has a separate main fuel tanks from the Descent Module, unlike the LK lander core.

During ascent, immediately after separation from the Descent Module, this module temporarily enters a pre-programmed "auto-pilot" routine, which places it into a stable orbit. The LK Lander Core has this same feature.

Trivia

  • When maneuvering by itself in the launch stage, it can gain tremendous speeds using the main engine. This is likely because this engine is needed to counteract the planet's/moon's gravity
