Much like the LK Lander Legs, the Lunar Module Descent vehicle is a part of the Lunar Module, used for landing mainly on LUN, but can be used to land on a variety of other planets. The Lunar Module Descent can land on its own, but will be extremely difficult to manoeuvre due to its lack of manoeuvering thrusters. The Lunar Module Decent requires an Ascent Vehicle to supply manoeuvering capability.

The list of all of the payloads, rockets or stations parts that can be placed atop the Lunar Module Descent can be found here.


  • After landing on LUN, the Lunar Module Ascent vehicle uses this part as a launch pad.
  • Once landed, it cannot return to orbit.
