Default Mars 2 and 3 (Russian Mars Orbiters and Landers + Prop M)

With the Proton rocket (Multistage 2015 version) being usable on Orbiter 2016, There has to be a way for some of its payloads including Mars 2 and 3 to be made into addons for it.

UPDATE: There has probably been a model of both the Mars 2 and 3 lander and the Prop M rover on Gmod, but it would be impossible to export to Orbiter.

The Venera 9-14 probes share the same bus (3MV) as the Soviet Mars 2-3, maybe that could help in making meshes for Mars 2-3

What is Gmod and why impossible to export?

I was hoping that the spacecraft bus for these probes were the same as the Veneras.

Yes, Here's Mars3, it's close to the early Veneras:


Venera 9 :


I'd say perhaps some differences on antennas, solar panels and radiators. But soviet photos don't tell much, so in practice... same bus

The lander component of Mars 2 and 3....seems like a beefed up version of the Luna 9 lander

Here's the Prop-M rover that were aboard Mars 2 and 3 landers.

Another view of the Soviet orbiter

Without the heatshield, the lander inside is spherical in shape (the red ball on top)

I have no idea how the Prop-M rover is going to be animated on Orbiter, since that rover doesn't even have any wheels, but rather is like one of those wind up toys.

Here is the video that features the Prop-M rover in action.
